HCMC – The World Records Union (WorldKings) has granted the World Record certificate to Vietnam for being “The largest producer and exporter of Robusta coffee to the global market”.
WorldKings also honored the country’s unique and diverse art in blending and brewing and the Robusta coffee drinking culture.
Robusta coffee accounts for nearly 90% of the coffee plantations nationwide. Vietnam currently has the highest production and export of Robusta coffee in the world. In the 2020-2021 crop season, the country reached an output of 1.68 million tons of Robusta coffee on an area of 630,000 hectares, according to the data of the United States Department of Agriculture.
Coffee is not only a drink but is also considered a part of the culture of the Vietnamese people.
Each region has its unique recipe. Coffee has become an inevitable part of Vietnamese life.
There are more and more unique creations in the art of blending Vietnamese Robusta coffee to create delicious, attractive and novel coffee cups. Those cups of coffee have been conquering many foodies, continuously entering the world’s best by prestigious websites.
“It can be said that Vietnam is a leading country in terms of the production and export of Robusta coffee. All these values have contributed to creating a “Coffee Culture” from the Robusta coffee beans of the country and people of Vietnam – a culture with many distinctive, diverse and unique heritage values in the world,” WorldKings said.
“WorldKings believes that with the recognition of this World Record for Vietnam’s Robusta coffee, the Vietnamese coffee brand will be better known to the world, especially Robusta coffee. This contributes to creating a competitive advantage for Vietnam in the global coffee market.”
According to Le Hoang Diep Thao, vice chairwoman of the Vietnam Coffee and Cocoa Association, Vietnam accounts for 40% of the global Robusta coffee production, sometimes reaching 60-70%.
“WorldKings’ recognition can be considered the most special event of Vietnam’s coffee industry. This is an asset of the country and the Vietnamese people,” she said.
Last year, Vietnam was awarded five world records for its cuisine and specialties, including “The country owns the most ‘strand-and-broth’ dishes in the world”, “The country owns the most kinds of mam (salted fish) and dishes made from mam with typical flavors in the world”, “The country owns the most dishes made from flowers in the world”, “The country owns the most kinds of wrap-and roll dishes in the world”, and “The country owns the most dishes made from rice flour in the world”.
