The number of coffee processing firms has reached 239 in Vietnam so far, producing 1.24 million tons of coffee products per year, accounting for 96 percent of the country’s total output.

However, they have mainly processed coffee beans for exports bringing low added value. Coffee powder and instant products hold only 4-6 percent of the total output.

The ministry would study to increase coffee products, improve quality and intensify the connectivity between coffee growers and processing businesses for sustainable development.
