Three hundred viewers joined the WIPO’s Regional Conference on Adding Value to Coffee Production with Intellectual Property on November 10 and 11.
Participants heard about the value of geographical indications and intangibles in coffee; how to improve production quality and gender equity in coffee; ethical coffee certification; the value of branding and storytelling; how to use technology, processes, and certifications, to increase productivity and traceability; and the importance of technical cooperation on intellectual property for specialty coffee in the Asia Pacific Region.
