India’s coffee exports declined marginally to 3,00,522 tonnes in the 2014-15 marketing year due to multiple factors, including drop in global prices, according to the Coffee Board.
Exports stood at 3,03,250 tonnes in the previous year. The coffee marketing year runs from October to September.
“There was a slight reduction in coffee exports during 2014-15. Many global factors affected trade decisions though there was global demand for Indian coffee varieties,” a senior Coffee Board official told PTI.
Although exports showed a slight decline in volume terms, the shipments have risen in value terms to Rs 5,142 crore in the 2014-15 marketing year as against Rs 4,920 crore in the previous year, the Board data showed.
The unit per value realisation rose to Rs 1,71,105 per tonne in 2014-15, compared with Rs 162,255 per tonne in the previous year.
