Coffee Production To Increase By 6.7% In 2011-12

Coffee production in India is expected to increase by 6.7% to 3,22,250 tonnes during the 2011-12 financial year as per the post-blossom estimates carried out by the Coffee Board. The Minister of State for Commerce and Industry, Jyotiraditya Scindia, said in a written reply to Rajya Sabha that "According to these estimates, total production of coffee in the country in 2011-12 is placed at 3,22,250 tonnes, against the final production estimates of 3,02,000 tonnes for the year 2010-11".

In 2010-11, coffee production in Karnataka and Kerala stood at 2,13,780 tonnes and 65,650 tonnes, respectively, while Tamil Nadu produced 16,650 tonnes during the period.

On the global front, as per the International Coffee Organization (ICO), world coffee production in the current 2010-2011 crop year reached 133.3 million bags, increasing 8.2% from the prior crop year. Although top producer Brazil estimates a decline in its coffee output, the ICO believes that the impact of the decline in Brazilian production would be offset by Colombian output, after two crop years of low production.
