To facilitate transportation, participants at the meeting agreed to set up transit centers to help coffee growers avoid transportation difficulties.
To the peelers, they will have to present their renewed licenses to the transit centers and those licenses come from the ARFIC (Coffee Sector Regulation Authority)
