Brazilian coffee imports edge up in H1
Dubai, December 9, 2012
The Arab world imported $106.9 million worth of Brazilian coffee during the first half of 2012, reflecting a 1.52 per cent increase in revenues compared to the same period last year, said a report.
Brazil exported 526,464 pieces of 60-kilogram coffee bags to various markets in the region from January to June 2012, according to new figures released by the Brazilian Coffee Exporter Council (Cecafé).
In 2011, Brazilian coffee exports to the Arab region reached $214 million, increasing by 35.88 per cent from 2010 according to statistics from the Arab-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce.
“Brazilian coffee exporters are stepping up efforts to satisfy the preferences and needs of consumers in the Arab region, where coffee has always been a very popular beverage,” said Michel Alaby, general secretary and CEO of Arab-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce.
“The increase in revenue during the first six months of 2012 is a strong indication that we are in the right direction as we continue to cultivate healthy trade alliances between Brazil and the Arab world. In this regard, the Arab-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce remains firmly committed to provide strategic support to further expand the market share of Brazilian coffee exporters in the lucrative Arab market.”
The Arab-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce was established more than 60 years ago to consolidate and expand partnerships, generate opportunities and bring Arabs and Brazilians together. – TradeArabia News Service
