India’s coffee exports are likely to fall this quarter because of a shortfall in the crop and a reduction in the government export incentive.
Coffee Board figures show a 17 per cent drop from last year in exports from January 1 to February 11. The coffee industry expects this trend to continue in the coming weeks. In 2019, exports were marginally higher than in the previous year.
“Arabica arrivals were bad and now robusta volumes coming to the market are slow. As a result, exports are lower than a year ago,” said the president of Coffee Exporters Association.
