Coffee returns to pole position in Nicaraguan exports

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

Coffee reclaimed its former position at the top of Nicaragua’s export list in 2012, accounting for $519 million in sales last year.

In 2011, coffee ranked second to beef, which last year slipped to third place. Gold came in second place last year, netting $431 million in sales in 2012, according to the Center for Export Processing, Cetrex.

Nicaraguan beef exports dipped in volume last year despite increasing in average price per pound. The decrease in trade volume was enough to knock beef from first to third on the list of Nicaragua’s top grossing exports.
