Britain recently signed a key global coffee sector agreement aimed at tackling some of the industry's most pressing issues, including making coffee growing and coffee consumption more sustainable.

Food and farming minister Mark Spencer signed the 'International Coffee Agreement (ICA) 2022', the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Department said in a joint statement with the International Coffee Organisation (ICO) and the British Coffee Association (BCA).
