Genetic modification in coffee

All of the vari­eties list­ed in this cat­a­log have been cre­at­ed through tra­di­tion­al breed­ing approach­es. To the knowl­edge of sci­en­tists at World Cof­fee Research, no com­mer­cial­ly avail­able cof­fee vari­ety has been cre­at­ed through genet­ic engineering.

World Cof­fee Research and all par­ties receiv­ing fund­ing from WCR are pro­hib­it­ed from engag­ing in the devel­op­ment of genet­i­cal­ly mod­i­fied coffees.

World Coffee Research

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.
