Salvadoran coffee is on the path to sustainable growth

On January 26, the Press Secretary of the Government of El Salvador published a statement about the path of the coffee agribusiness in which it is stated that Salvadoran coffee is recovering towards sustainable growth.

The coffee industry is leaving the period of stagnation in the past thanks to the increase in the price of coffee on an international scale, in a way that was not recorded 10 years ago.

According to the report issued by the Central Reserve Bank (BCR), sales of salvadoran coffee worldwide registered 108.13 million dollars as of December 2021. In volume, the growth was 2.79%, and there was a 13.6% increase in amount.

The price of Salvadoran coffee has registered an increase since the harvest that has been harvested in recent months will be sold at $215.07 per quintal, compared to the 2020-2021 harvest that was sold at $175.30, according to the Salvadoran Council of Coffee (CSC).

During Expo 202 Dubai, on the day dedicated to El Salvador, the First Lady of the Republic, Gabriela de Bukele, shared with Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, a member of the organizing committee, a cup of our country’s aromatic coffee.

Thanks to the Legislative Assembly and the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAG), nearly 7,000 coffee producers will be able to benefit from three-year financial relief based on the possibilities of each one.

The government of El Salvador has opted for the coffee sector through agronomic practices and grain marketing. A complete and modern team has also been delegated to evaluate the quality of the drink obtained through the harvest, and it is expected that in 2022, technology and knowledge transfer will continue to be provided.
