The ICAC’s plenary meeting is being held from December 6 to 8, 2021. The virtual and free for all to attend meeting has sessions on the cotton supply chain, T-shirt labeling, hybrid cotton technology and sustainability. An announcement will be sent in the coming weeks once all recorded presentations are uploaded and available on YouTube.
The International Cotton Advisory Committee (ICAC) formed in 1939 is an association of cotton producing, consuming and trading countries. It acts as a catalyst for change by helping member countries maintain a healthy world cotton economy, provides transparency to the world cotton market by serving as a clearinghouse for technical information on cotton production and serves as a forum for discussing cotton issues of international significance.
In addition, members can take advantage of the ICAC’s global network of cotton researchers, whose expertise covers the supply chain from farm to textile manufacturing, and have free access to its cutting-edge technologies like the voice-based app and virtual technology cotton training program. Committed to ensuring cotton’s continued sustainability, the ICAC is the only intergovernmental commodity body covering cotton that is recognised by the United Nations.
