Must read


Chongqing municipality is building the country’s largest instant-coffee factory, which is scheduled for completion in 2018, local authorities said.

The factory will produce 10,000 tons of freeze-dried coffee, 2,000 tons of liquid coffee concentrate and 3,000 tons of baked coffee beans per year, said Chongqing State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission.

Coffee consumption is growing rapidly in China, although tea is still more popular. China’s imports of coffee increased from 13,900 tons in 1998 to 59,200 tons in 2015.

China’s main coffee growing regions are in the provinces of Yunnan, Hainan and Fujian, as well as Guangxi. Most domestic instant coffee is produced in Guangdong Province.
