Angolan coffee is exported to Portugal (56 tons in the second half of 2020), Spain, France and Switzerland, with China being a market with "big coffee consumers", and as such a "very interesting target for Ginga", assumed the general director of Angonabeiro, Nuno Moinhos, speaking to Lusa.
PLPEX 2022, which takes place between this Thursday and Saturday, is an exhibition that brings together, in one place, companies specializing in products and services from Portuguese-speaking countries (PLP), facilitating exchange and cooperation between Macau, the PLP and the interior of China.
The objective is to make the coffee produced in Angola known to participants from the interior of China, the nine Portuguese-speaking countries and neighboring regions, according to a statement from Angonabeiro.
Nuno Moinhos also underlined, in the same note, that Angonabeiro has an "export vocation" and is investing in increasing production capacity, in new products and in the international notoriety of the brand.
"If there are competitive conditions, it will be possible to significantly increase the quantity to be exported, both of raw material and of finished product", he added, stressing that Angonabeiro wants to "continue to develop the entire coffee chain, from support to producers and farmers in the field until its transformation and commercialization".
