Well-processed coffee is expected to increase from 14 to 15 per cent of total coffee production of 400,000 tonnes in Dak Lak to achieve economic value.
DAK LAK –
Dak Lak province is the Viet Nam's biggist coffee producer
The province has implemented a policy to limit raw berry coffee exports while increasing well-processed coffee and encouraging domestic and foreign investors to build powder and instant coffee factories with capacities from 700 to 1,000 tonnes/per year respectively.
However, the volume of well-processed coffee has remained low, covering only 7-8 percent of total coffee production each year.
At the moment, only 10 enterprises process large-scale powder and instant coffee including Trung Nguyen and An Thai etc. The Trung Nguyen Coffee JSC has invested into building a factory to process powder and instant coffee with a capacity of up to 60,000 tonnes per year. Other companies such as Ngon Coffee and An Thai have completed construction on their factories and have begun test production. - VNS
