About the Platform

The Brazilian Platform has two coordinating bodies, the National Advisory Board (NAB) and the Brazil Working Group.

Launched in 2013 and 2014 respectively, the BWG is active at the technical level while the NAB brings together supply chain leaders. Both bodies act in an advisory capacity with the objective of making sustainability a stronger priority for the Brazilian coffee sector.
