Constructing Private Governance

Graeme Auld

Yale University Press

This chapter traces the origins of certification programs in the coffee industry, with particular reference to the impact of developments in the intergovernmental arena since the 1960s. It examines factors that helped in the development of three separate streams of certification: organic agriculture, fair trade, and sustainable production. It also considers the impact of the coffee supply chain's low barriers to entry on the development of private initiatives.

Keywords:   certification programs, coffee industry, certification, organic agriculture, fair trade, sustainable production, supply chain, barriers to entry
