Coffee facility set up

Pistacia Mindanao Coffee Export Inc. (PMCEI) has set up a P1-million coffee production facility in Bansalan, Davao del Sur whose produce will be exported to Japan.

The Board of Investments (BOI)-Davao Extension Office recently approved the company’s project.

In a statement, the BOI said the initiative was the first micro and small enterprise project that gained approval under the export activities of the 2017 Investment Priorities Plan.

PMCEI, an 80% owned by Japanese corporation, has established the manufacturing site to produce fermented coffee and cacao beans. The project has a capacity of 2,250 kilograms a year of fermented coffee and 750 kilograms of cacao beans annually.

The products of the company will be solely exported to Japan.

“The firm will engage in the development of coffee growers and provide technical assistance in terms of growing, sorting and harvesting of coffee,” BOI said in a statement.

The company is specializing in the production of high-quality agricultural crops such as coffee and cacao.

“It would provide end-to-end support to smallholder farmers with access to technology and market. Through this innovative business, it will increase and sustain farmers’ yields, income and eventually improve quality of life,” BOI said in a statement. (KMF)
