Brazil Exports 6% Less Coffee But Earns 14% More

Brazilian coffee Brazilian exports of coffee reached 2.1 million bags of coffee in August, which generated revenues of US$ 354 million. The value represents growth of 18.6% over the total obtained last month, according to information disclosed by the Brazilian Coffee Exporter Council (CeCafé).

Between the months of January and August, Brazil sold abroad 17 million bags of the product and had revenues of US$ 2.7 billion with operations. There was growth of 14.2% in earnings despite a reduction of 6% in volume exported. In 2007, revenues reached US$ 2.4 billion.

According to the director general at CeCafé, Guilherme Braga, prices have been growing gradually and continuously over the last two years, and this reflects relations between demand and offer. The main importers of coffee from Brazil are still Germany, the United States, Italy and Belgium.

In the accumulated result for January to August, the highlight of exports was Robusta and conillon coffees. Sales of these products grew 68.1%. Exports reached 771,800 bags in the first eight months of 2007 and 1.2 million up to August this year.

According to Braga, the increase of exports of Robusta and conillon is due to Vietnam, the main global producer of this kind of coffee, which adopted measures for control of offer and increased global prices of the variety, making the Brazilian product more competitive.
