(Business in Cameroon) - At the end of March 2020, 104 coffee processing plants were operating in Cameroon, according to the National Coffee and Cocoa Board of Cameroon (NCCB).

The office estimates that this increase in number, recorded over the past three years is due to a sharp rise in the number of plants launched in the Eastern region. The remaining plants are scattered around the main production areas in the Littoral, the Western and North-Western regions.

In February, the  North-Western region won the gold award during the first edition of Cameroon's national coffee competition baptized  "Taste the Harvest." The region was awarded via the North West Cooperative Association (NWCA) whose coffee sample produced in Belo, in the department of Boyo, received a note of 84 over 100.

Thanks in part to its 104 processing plants, Cameroon sold 35,215 tons of coffee (7,418 tons of Arabica and 27,797 tons of robusta coffee) during the 2018/2019 campaign. This volume was up 39.1% compared with the volume it sold during the previous campaign.
