Over the past five years, Ukraine’s coffee imports have grown by 63%. In 2020, they reached 48.4 thousand tons for a total amount of $166.1 million, according to the Ukrainian Agribusiness Club Association (UCAB).
About 51% of coffee is imported unroasted and processed already in Ukraine.
The main suppliers of coffee to Ukraine are European countries, which import coffee beans, bring them to a certain marketable condition (pack/roast/grind/make instant coffee) and then sell them.
In 2020, Ukraine imported coffee from Poland (for $37.8 million, 23% of total imports), Italy ($25.5 million, 15%), Germany ($14.8 million, 9%), Vietnam ($14.6 million, 9%) and Brazil ($12.4 million, 7%). (Ukrinform/Business World Magazine)
