Government to include organic coffee in export basket
The government will include the organic coffee in the list of major export products.
Speaking at an interaction on the occasion of golden jubilee of organic coffee production in Nepal, senior economic advisor Dr Chiranjivi Nepal said that the government will bring a separate policy to promote organic coffee as it has been getting popularity in recent days. "The government will help promote organic coffee."
It has been 25 years that organic coffee production has started in Nepal.
Promotion of organic coffee will not only boost exports but also creates employment in the country as the commercialisation of organic coffee has made it popular. "Though there is a huge potential in organic coffee production, the farmers have not been able to tap the potential," according to the entrepreneurs.
