Historically it is a first for them in their exporting business.
“It marks a very significant and special event for Kongo Coffee Limited and the entire PNG coffee industry,” said Jerry Kapka managing director.
“This goes to demonstrate that our coffee is very special and can attract very good buyers from Japan and other parts of the world,” he said.
Kongo Coffee Limited is a leading exporter of premium and specialty coffee brands to Japan and other parts of the world.
The company has been exporting the brands including its Elimbari specialty coffee to very reputable coffee roasters and traders in Japan for over 15 years.
Japan, importing over 8 million bags annually, is the third largest importer of coffee behind the United States and Germany.
Japan presents a very good market for PNG coffee thus, all serious and intending exporters are encouraged to explore the opportunities.
