Analysis of Coffee Subsector of Nepal: Policy and Production Perspective

Arun GC [1] , Sudip Devkota [2] , Amita Pandey [3] , Kiran Ghimire [4]


The paper has assessed the policy and the production status of Nepali coffee. Coffee is one of the most famous beverages in the world. Although coffee farming has a relatively short history in Nepal, it is gaining popularity. The government has introduced a separate policy for coffee. Coffee has been included as a priority crop in the several other plans, policies and strategies including Nepal Trade Integration Strategy (NTIS). The government has also established a board to take lead in the coffee and tea sector of the country. The secondary data were retrieved from several government agencies and were analyzed. The National Coffee Policy was reviewed critically. As a methodology for the study, the scoring and the raking were performed for the major coffee-producing districts. The area, the yield, the number of households involved in the coffee production, and the area holding per farming household were variables under consideration. It was found that none of the coffee-producing district is superior in all aforementioned aspects. Moreover, the top ten coffee producing countries have a market share of 90 per cent and Nepal is far behind the scene. Therefore, the area expansion and the productivity enhancement are two important issues need to be considered. Improvement of the policy and the further proactive role of the board is deemed necessary to make the coffee farming as a real cash crop at the national and the international arena.
