SUPPORT FOR COFFEE PROCESSING  – By Coffee Board of India

SCHEME OF SUPPORT FOR COFFEE PROCESSING

Introduction:
In the world today, 40% of the coffee economy is in the producing countries while the remaining 60% has been captured by the consuming countries. Over the last few years they have improved the capabilities of processing, manufacturing and marketing coffee as an end product. Adoption of latest technologies in roasting grinding and packaging is critical for the sustained development of coffee value chain and the coffee market.

Processing, packaging and marketing of coffee in the domestic market would also provide ample opportunities for employment generation especially through small and medium enterprises. As the modern technologies in the areas of coffee roasting, grinding and packaging are capital intensive; it inhibits the Small and Medium Enterprises (SMES) to venture into taking up coffee value addition activities.
