Indian coffee exports rise 43 per cent

In the value terms, exports have jumped 48 per cent at Rs 434.5 crore, as per the Coffee Board data released on Tuesday. In the corresponding period of 2009, India, world’s sixth largest coffee producer, exported 27,000 tonnes worth Rs 290 crore.

“Coffee exports have picked up because domestic supplies were better than that of last year,” a senior Coffee Board official told PTI.

Coffee production is estimated to increase at 2.89 lakh tonnes in the 2009-10 season, which runs October to September, compared to 2.62 lakh tonnes in the previous season.
The official noted that demands from overseas have also increased owing to stable price of Indian coffee.
