Honduras Coffee Exports To Fall As Farmers’ Plight Deepens – Industry


TEGUCIGALPA, Sept 19 (Reuters) – Coffee exports from Honduras are expected to fall in the next harvest, a senior industry official said on Thursday, as lower bean prices in the global market and climate change dented businesses across the Central American country.

Honduras, the largest coffee exporter in Central America, expects its 2019-2020 harvest to drop by about 4.6% to 6.6 million bags of 60kg each, the Honduran Coffee Institute said.

Apart from falling prices, climate change was another factor that had made coffee growing difficult for many in recent years, Francisco Ordonez, director of Honduran Coffee Institute, said in an interview with Reuters.
