Brazilian coffeeThe Arab nations imported $117,64 million worth of coffee from Brazil during the period of January to August this year, reflecting a 1,92 per cent revenue increase over the same period of 2012, according to the Brazilian Ministry of Development, Industry and Trade.


Brazil exported 46 tons of coffee to the Arab region from January to August 2013, indicating a 31 percent increase in volume.

According to the Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce, the Arab world has been consistently a major market for Brazilian coffee products. Even though the total revenue for Brazilian coffee exports to the international markets has reduced by 16,27 percent during January to August this year, in comparison to the same period of 2012, generating only $3,08 billion, the total volume has increased by 31 percent.

The increase in volume as against the revenue is the result of depreciation in the price of coffee in the international market. In order to tackle external obstacles, many Brazilian coffee exporters are selling sophisticated blends of gourmet coffee, that will meet expectations of the most passionate coffee lovers.

Michel Alaby, Secretary General and CEO of Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce"The Brazilian coffee exporters are stepping up efforts to establish direct trade relations with Arab traders, cutting down intermediaries. The increase in volume of coffee exports this year indicates the popularity of Brazilian coffee in the region," said Michel Alaby, secretary general and CEO of Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce.
