AGM election update

ACTA 2023 AGM was held on Thursday 23rd November at The Park Hyatt, Sydney. Elections were held for the 2024 ACTA Committee. A delicious three course luncheon, stunning views across to the Opera House all made for a brilliant day. A fabulous networking event!

As is often the case, the Members who attended represented the full cross section of the Australian Coffee Industry.   Very well attended with over 50 guests.

Thanks to our expert speakers from The Dept of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF).   The key theme for this meeting was “An overview of green coffee from a DAFF perspective” and where 3 representatives provided their valuable input on the work of DAFF, addressing leading questions as prepared by the ACTA Membership in advance.

A summary was provided of ACTA’s key activities over the year, and the Association’s ongoing focus on remaining the leading voice of all sectors involved in the fascinating Australian coffee industry. Thanks were also given to the Committee Members who selflessly continue to make the effort and time for the coffee industry at large.
