STiR Tea & Coffee

is now the world's leading INDUSTRY trade magazine in the tea and coffee industries. STiR Tea & Coffee Industry Bi-Monthly is born out of the tea & coffee industry’s demand for a quality international magazine that takes its concerns to heart with a professional outlook and reporting edge. Built upon the success of the well-known and accepted Tea & Coffee Asia, which was launched in June 1999, STiR keeps the world’s coffee and tea businesses on top of the latest trends, abreast of the most recent technology, and one step ahead of growing competition. The major focus of STiR Tea & Coffee Industry Bi-Monthly is the concerns of coffee roasters and tea packers, tea leaf and coffee bean importers and exporters, and tea and coffee growers and plantations. Readers will learn what manufacturing processes are being used, the latest packaging techniques, types of coffee and tea which countries/companies are leading the way, and all the latest on the equipment, machinery, supplies and services required to bring tea & coffee products to the marketplace. Another major focus of the magazine is on coffee shops, tea shops, hotels, espresso bars, and cafes and what they need to set up their tea and coffee service business and how to improve that business. In every issue you can expect to learn who is serving the latest coffee and tea brands, what flavors are popular, and what equipment they are using, as well as merchandising and trade innovations.

FDA Responds to Coffee Industry Concerns

In a highly unusual move, the FDA has re-floated proposed food safety rules under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) following a deluge of public comments.

The National Coffee Association led an industry effort to exempt green coffee from compliance with “onerous” food safety rules that ignore the fact that coffee is a low-risk food that warrants a lesser degree of scrutiny.

FDA explicitly recognizes that the type and characteristics of a food should be considered in calibrating safety plans that are compliant with FSMA. FDA also incorporates the concepts of “probability” and “severity” in assigning appropriate scrutiny levels to individual food-related risks, reported NCA in a membership alert.

“Among other things, they recognize that existing controls in place at food-handling facilities already achieve food safety goals,” writes NCA.

NCA argued that existing safety plans, which are typically customized to suit the physical and sanitary needs of individual facilities and the foods they handle, already provide targeted security that new plans, applied generically and proscriptively, cannot match. In the supplemental rules, FDA specifically recognizes that safety plans can be “tailored” to the individual food facility in question.

FDA is under a court order that requires the agency to have final rules in place by Aug. 15, 2015. “NCA anticipates that its ongoing efforts, along with those of many others from throughout the broader food industry, will result in final rules that will ensure safety without unnecessarily encumbering commerce,” according to the release.
