Nes­tle to source more cof­fee from Yun­nan

China Daily (USA) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

Nes­tle will buy 13,500 tons of cof­fee beans from south China's Yun­nan prov­ince this year as the global food gi­ant seeks to de­velop ties with the cof­fee-grow­ing re­gion.

The annual pur­chase vol­ume has posted in­creases for years.

Dong Yuguo, vice pres­i­dent of Nes­tle China, said Nes­tle was go­ing to in­crease its pres­ence in China to make the most of the coun­try's huge mar­ket po­ten­tial.

Yun­nan ac­counts for over 99 per­cent of China’s cof­fee plan­ta­tions and pro­duc­tion, with a plant­ing area of 120,000 hectares and an out­put of 130,000 tons.

Nes­tle first es­tab­lished cof­feere­lated projects in the prov­ince in 1988. Since then, it has trained 16,000 cof­fee farm­ers in Yun­nan, ben­e­fit­ing 13,300 hectares of cof­fee-plant­ing area.
