Vietnam’s coffee exports fell and Colombia struggling with labor shortages

Vietnam’s coffee exports in November fell 8.4% from October to 83,730 tonnes

For the first eleven months of the year, Vietnam exported 1.43 million tonnes of coffee, down 3.0% from a year earlier, Vietnam Customs said in a statement.

Farms in Colombia are struggling with labor shortages this year as low coffee prices have not provided funds to hire coffee pickers and the job has become riskier due to the coronavirus pandemic.
