Welke Customs Brokers to Present at Coffeefest in February

Welke Customs Brokers to Present at Coffeefest in February

Damon Piatek, President and CEO of Welke Customs Brokers USA, will be a featured presenter at the 2015 Coffeefest, an international trade show serving the specialty coffee and gourmet tea industries. Coffeefest will be held in February in Atlanta, GA. The event has been in existence since 1992.

 

“Coffeefest 2015, as suggested by its name, will be a celebration of coffee and an opportunity for people to coalesce around the coffee business,” said Piatek. “As good a time as that sounds, there are many intricacies in importing coffee into the United States. We know from experience that a lot of importers across every industry are not necessarily keeping up with changing regulations. Coffeefest will be a good opportunity for us to bring some critical information about coffee importing to industry stakeholders.”
