04.05.2016 The company Falcon Coffees Ltd. has developed a blueprint to increase the efficiency and transparency of supply chains. This is opening the way for participants in the coffee trade to achieve greater commercial success. Investors and around 30 million smallholder farmers can benefit from this model.
