Ethiopian Commodity Exchage

The Ethiopian Commodity Exchange (ECX) is a national multi-commodity exchange established in 2008 through which most of the country’s coffee is traded. Learn more about the Ethiopian commodity exchange from the official ECX website here.

Vertical Intergration

Vertical integration is a sourcing method whereby an agreement is reached between the exporter and producer to allow direct trade without the use of the ECX as a transaction platform.

This enables a dialogue with the producer and increases traceability. It is widely recognized as a good option for the supply of premium and specialty coffee a s this method improves coffee traceability and supply chain transparency.
