Zooming in on five major coffee producing countries – Brazil, Colombia, Indonesia, Kenya and Vietnam – this report aims to provide an overview of both the 4C Units’ achievements and some of the challenges they are facing on their “journey to sustainability”. Special attention is paid to the issues of 4C Units’ performance against the Code of Conduct, their ability to “step-up” to more demanding sustainability standards, their improvement over the 3 year verification cycle, the number of training opportunities that were facilitated at the Unit level and the facilitation of the relationship between different groups of stakeholders along the coffee value chain.
