Please note that the WCR Verified program is no longer accepting new applications to verify seed producers or nurseries.
WCR Verified℠ is the first global standard to certify that coffee seed producers and plant nurseries are producing healthy and genetically pure plants.
The WCR Verified℠ is an independent program based on ISO 17065 principles which follows the “four eyes” concept — that four eyes are better than two, to certify the production process of the origin, authenticity, and health of coffee seeds, in-vitro material, and plants.
World Coffee Research is a 501 (c)(5) non-profit, collaborative research and development program of the global coffee industry to grow, protect, and enhance supplies of quality coffee while improving the livelihoods of the families who produce it.
