Cooxupé, the largest coffee growers cooperative in Brazil, expects a 25.6% drop in coffee receipts in 2021, amid a drop in the arabica harvest, but is expected to increase shipments with stocks of the 2020 major harvest, he said. the institution's commercial superintendent, Lúcio Dias, this Wednesday.
According to him, the cooperative's receipts would fall from a record 8.2 million bags of 60 kg in 2020 to 6.1 million bags in 2021, since the arabica harvest is in its low year of the biannual cycle. In addition, the harvest is expected to be less due to the severe drought recorded over the past year.
"There is a serious loss of arabica," he said, during an event promoted by the consultancy Safras & Mercado.
He stated that the cooperative prefers to work with figures from the National Supply Company (Conab), which estimates the national Arabica crop between 29.7 million and 33 million bags, with a decrease of 32.4% to 39% compared to the previous year. .
Despite the expected drop in receipts, the cooperative's shipments are expected to increase this year, from around 6 million bags in 2020 to 7 million bags in 2021.
"This year the shipment is higher because last year's stock remained," said Dias, citing the record harvest of 2020.
The cooperative is the largest coffee exporter in Brazil.
At the national level, Dias said that production will not fall so much, since the harvest of the Conilon variety must be "good".
Conab estimates the country's total harvest, including arabica and conilon (robusta), between 43.85 million and 49.58 million bags in 2021.
