It is quite easy to trace coffee statistics, for example by just
using the search function on this website, or by reading chapters
One and Two where Australia features in topic 02.03.08.
Alternatively, go to www.ico.org
(website of the International Coffee Organization in London - click
on statistics - historical data - non-member countries imports of
green coffee in 60 kg bags).
Selected Australian green coffee import data
533,000 bags in 1976
686,000 bags in 1986
845,000 bags in 1996
854,000 bags in 2006
Of the 2006 green coffee imports the largest suppliers were:
Vietnam 285,000 bags; Papua New Guinea 172,000 bags and Brazil
130,000 bags. Interestingly, Indonesia only supplied 37,000 bags.
Note that Australia also imports substantial amounts of soluble
coffee and re-exports both green and soluble coffee as well.
However, please note that this website is not a database
but rather a source of information pertaining to the trade in
coffee. As such only a small number of the most important
trend statistics are provided and we do not engage in the kind of
data search you are envisaging… We would also assume that the
information you seek should be available from the Australian
Customs Authorities or trade information services.
Alternatively, we suggest you contact firstname.lastname@example.org to see if they are in a
position to provide more detailed information.
To note also that the International Trade Centre
(ITC-Geneva) itself, operators of this website, provides a wide
overview of the trade in many different products in individual
countries, including coffee, through 72 detailed Product Maps
. The statistics on this site are updated once a year but
it provides interesting information on what goes where and it is a
very useful tool for viewing trends. The site also offers market
surveys, links to other information sources and information on
selected companies. To access this service you will first have to
register through the website.
