Story of Vietnamese coffee import and export
Although it is the world’s leading producer of exported coffee, every year, Vietnam has to import about 60,000 tons of processed coffee. This story has caused many controversies around the coffee production and processing industry of our country.
Status of Vietnamese coffee exports
The report of the Ministry of Industry and Trade said that in 2017, Vietnam exported 1.4 million tons of coffee to the world market. With a total export value of US $ 3.2 billion. Thus, the agricultural sector has contributed a small part to the country’s GDP. However, like many other agricultural products of Vietnam. Coffee is still only being introduced to the world of raw products.
Currently, the largest value of the total export value is coffee beans. Then there is roasted coffee. And finally the finished coffee products. Local people are still using imported foreign coffee. In fact, the reports all indicate that Vietnam ranks second in the list of countries with the largest coffee export volume in the world. Every year, our country imports about 60,000 tons of processed coffee.
What’s more worth saying: Vietnamese coffee is delicious but Vietnamese people don’t enjoy it! 60,000 tons of imported Vietnamese coffee originated from Brazil, the US and China. There are many countries with lower coffee conditions. Such as: Indonesia, Laos, Cambodia … So it can be seen, our country is favored for coffee growing conditions. But still behind many countries in bringing their products to the world market.
Export of raw coffee and processed coffee
The export value of raw coffee is many times lower than that of finished coffee. However, the investment in equipment and technology for coffee processing is very expensive. This makes many businesses do not meet the requirements. Most Vietnamese enterprises are small and medium enterprises. Farm size with low investment. It is impossible to supply finished coffee products of international quality and standards. This is the main reason why Vietnam exports mainly raw materials.
The investment in technology and modern and synchronous processing lines is a prerequisite to solve the above situation. This investment helps improve the value of coffee. Business value is also many times higher than before. Not only is it beneficial for businesses themselves, the direction to process finished coffee also helps promote domestic consumer goods. Vietnamese people will enjoy the coffee lines made by Vietnamese people. Create more income and internal resources for the economy itself. Domestic coffee exporters will also gain certain advantages on the negotiating table with international contracts.
According to the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, currently there are more than 20 coffee processing plants across the country. The annual capacity of up to 75 thousand tons of instant coffee products. An effort worth noting for businesses with the government. From a raw coffee exporter, Vietnam ranks fifth among the largest instant coffee exporters in the world. Coffee processing industry makes an important contribution to the national budget.

As mentioned above, Vietnam imports coffee from a lot of countries to serve the domestic market. This shows that consumers’ tastes of coffee are varied. And there is considerable similarity with other countries in the world.
