The coffee sector is the second largest export commodity for developing countries. In 2007/2008 it has generated approximately US$ 13.0 billion and an estimated 100 million persons drive a living from growing, processing and trading coffee with smallholders producing the bulk of the world’s coffee.
In many African coffee producing countries such as Burundi and Ethiopia, coffee often represents the only source of rural cash income and represents a substantial proportion of export earnings. The "Exporting Coffee Products" training module highlights the role of women in the coffee sector and will help you to define the successful keys to become a coffee exporter.
