New Brazilian coffee company formed.

Representatives of al areas of the Brazilian Coffee Commerce decided to form a new entity to represent the coffee trade, both domestically and internationally, during meetings in Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and Brasilia in June.

The new committee, to be called the Brazilian Coffee Committee (CBC), was created to replace the coffee policy functions of the Brazilian Coffee Institute (IBC), which was extinguished by presidential decree in March 1990. Since that time, the Brazilian coffee market has been in a state of limbo with an absence of information and essential statistics. This situation caused the sudden suspension of export registration on March 21, 1991.

The CBC will be a single committee representing all sectors of Brazilian trade exporters, roasters, growers, cooperatives, coffee centers and associations, and the soluble industry. The committee will also work for united solutions to the problems dealing with the IBC coffee stocks and Brazils position with regard to the International Coffee Agreement.

The four founding members of the CBC board are: Oswaldo Aranha Neto, president of the Brazilian Coffee exporters Association (FEBEC); Suelly Amarantes, president of the Cooperative de Cafeicultores de Pocos de Caldas and president of the National Coffee Council (growers group); Evaldo Wachelke, president of the Brazilian Coffee Roasters Association (ABIC); and Sergio Coimbra, president of the Brazilian Soluble Coffee Industry (ABICS).
