Coffee from Cuanza Sul arrives in Europe with 18 tons exported via Porto do Lobito

The coffee ‘made in Angola’ will travel across borders and reach the European market. Exportation is the responsibility of the Fábrica de Rebenefício do Café-JMV Limitada, in Sumbe (Cuanza Sul), and will be done via Porto do Lobito.


A total of 18 tons of coffee were sent to the European continent in what, according to José Manuel Ventura, owner of the company, is the first export carried out, as a result of investment from the Commercial Agriculture Development Project.

The owner reported that the container with 18 tons of 'red bago' was transported on Wednesday, and subsequently left for Europe.

"This Wednesday, we transported a 20-foot container, that is, 18 tons of Cazengo Robusta commercial coffee, from coffee growers in the provinces of Bengo and Cuanza Norte, and today, through the Port of Lobito, the ship continued to Europe", he said, speaking to Angop.

However, the company still hopes to export more coffee to the European market this month, with the forecast for January pointing to the export of another 38 tons.

The person responsible, cited by Angop, also guaranteed that the coffee complies with the standards imposed by the International Coffee Organization.

The factory – whose doors opened on December 12th and budget is around 60 million kwanzas, through the Commercial Agriculture Development Project, of which the amounts were made available by the World Bank and Banco de Fomento Angola – has a processing capacity of 280 tons of coffee per month, in two shifts, whose production could be doubled according to customer demand, writes Angop.
