Speaking at the ceremony to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Angonabeiro, the Portuguese group that owns Delta Cafés, the Secretary of State for Planning, Milton Reis, stated that the sector offers great opportunities for investment in a product whose export will bring more foreign currency to the economy of the country.

"For this reason, the Angolan Government's strategy should be based on a strong model of development of the coffee value chain, with the presence, simultaneously, of large, medium and small farmers", said the official.

To promote the sector, farmers must act "in a logic of integrated cooperation, supported by anchor companies, such as Angonabeiro, which will provide support from planting to harvest", in order to "guarantee that the quality of the coffee is the best and achieve production levels that allow economies of scale in exports", he argued.

Milton Reis said he hopes that the celebration of the 25th anniversary of Angonabeiro, a leading company in the roasted coffee market in Angola, will also serve as a reflection and strengthen the understanding of the importance of coffee in boosting national production, replacing imports and promoting exports.

The official, who spoke on behalf of the Minister of Economy and Planning, said that Angonabeiro has supported the Angolan economy by stimulating national production, through the purchase of coffee from large and medium-sized farms.

According to Milton Reis, the agribusiness sector will play a fundamental role in achieving the objectives of the National Development Plan (PDN) 2023-2027, namely job creation, food security, poverty reduction and others, and the promotion of crops high-yield products, such as coffee and other commodities, will be prioritized.

The coffee value chain in Angola, he noted, comprises fertilizer suppliers, primary producers, processors, traders, roasters and exporters and allows us to state that promoting the chain is important for the country's economy.

Angonabeiro has been operating in Angola since 1998 and its 25th anniversary celebrations took place this Tuesday at its headquarters in Luanda.

Members of the company's management, government authorities, partners, friends and other guests took a guided tour of the company and attended the unveiling of a plaque in honor of Commander Rui Nabeiro, who died in March this year.
