(Business in Cameroon) - Cameroon’s national cocoa-coffee office (Oncc) informed the country sold 25,315 tons of coffee during the 2017-18 market year. Compared to the 20,270 tons the previous year, sales were up 20% in relative value.
The improvement, Oncc says, is the result of a better management of producers. The office mentioned “the establishment of the Oncc Bankim branch that made it possible to better monitor and supervise marketing in Adamaoua”.
The western and coastal regions sold 82% of Robusta output. Over the period under review, there were overall 45 purchasing operations across the country’s six production areas (Central, Coastal, Western, Northwest, Adamaoua and Eastern).
The quality of export products has remained good overall, according to Oncc. Indeed, 18,644 tons of Robusta coffee were subjected to export quality control by 16 exporters while 82% of the Arabica volume was controlled by three exporters including Olam Cam (38%), NWCA (30%) and Alpine Coffee (14%).
