Background of international coffee day
When the first International Coffee Agreement (ICA) went into effect in 1963, the ICO was created. Currently, there are six importing members and 43 exporting members in the ICO, which together account for 67% of global consumption and 98% of global coffee output.
The Southern Food and Beverage Museum first used the phrase “International coffee day” in 2009 during a conference to promote the New Orleans coffee festival. Many countries celebrate their coffee days individually, however, in 2014 it was decided, that an international day be celebrated. Accordingly, in 2015 international coffee day celebration commenced!

The ICO hosts International Coffee Day to promote fair trade of coffee along with spreading awareness about the struggles of coffee growers around the world. It is a way to honor corporate accomplishments, and show gratitude to the farmers who cultivate coffee all around the world.
