Cameroon Arabica Coffee October Exports Fall to Zero

Dec. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Cameroon’s arabica coffee exports dropped to zero in October, the country’s Cocoa and Coffee Inter-professional Board said.

The central African nation shipped 126 metric tons of arabica in the same month a year earlier, the board said today in an e-mailed statement from Douala.

Coffee farmers “liquidated” their stock at the end of last season and had nothing left to sell in October, Waindim Timothy, administration manager for the North West Cooperative Association, said by phone from Bamenda, 400 kilometers (250 miles) northwest of the capital, Yaounde. Heavy rains may have delayed the new crop, he said.

Total exports for the season that ended in September fell by 13 percent to 3,154 tons, Inter-professional Board said.
