Rwanda Exports Roasted Coffee Beans To United States

Rwanda recorded its first highest roasted beans shipment to the United States of America that generated $77,000 for the Rwandan government. The foreign earnings recorded a high due to its value to the country other than what the country used to export in the previous years.

Rwanda is a major coffee export earner and has since been looking for ways to make their product better and marketable beyond the regional territories, in a bid of venturing into new markets in the European and Asian countries. It is believed that the roasted coffee beans have high value as compared to the washed green coffee beans that would somewhat not bring a bigger revenue to the country.

The trading partnership between USA and Rwanda has been facilitated by other trading agreements between the two parties such as ‘beyond fair-trade’ business model which has been pivotal for the coffee farmers as well. The two countries seek to boost their trading interactions more effective and efficient

Coffee farmers stand to reap benefits from the partnership to boost their economic lives as well and stand on a stable ground as they continue with their farming. All these are geared towards improving the brand of Rwandan coffee as well as cater for the needs of the farmers in general.

Rwanda’s competitive performance would affect the upturn of the country’s economy. In March last year, coffee export receipts shot up to $2.4 million owing to the value addition in the commodity. National Agricultural Export Board (NAEB) has put more emphasis on value addition for the board to sell more in the international markets including Germany, United Kingdom and South Korea.
