FAOB BIGHT BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, MARCH Brazil May Burn Surplus Coffee, Exporter Says 7 Million Pounds May Be Destroyed To Keep Price Up NEW YORK Wl — A Brazilian coffee exporter says his country may burn six to seven million bags of coffee tills year to keep the price up. Abrahao Jabour said last night the 1954-55 crop in Brazil 'could produce a surplus of...that many bags, each weighing 132 pounds. Brazil grows the bulk of the world's coffee. He said the surplus will be withdrawn from the market—and maybe burned—when the 1955-56 crop starts next July. The 1954-55 crop, he said at a news conference, is expected to produce 15 million bags and the following year there may be 16 or n million. Would "Ruin Producers He said a decrease in the Brazil price of coffee, now around 50 to 54 cents a pound, could ruin many producers. A year ago coffee prices reached an all-time high in the United States, where the best brands sold for $1.30 a pound or more. The price in Brazil at the time was about 93 cents a pound. Brazilian officials reported these high prices were caused by frost damage to the 1953 crop. The present price of coffee permits chain stores here to sell it for less than 80 cents a pound, valthough some premium brands still cost more than a dollar. H Brazil destroys part of its coffee crop this year in order to maintain the price, it will not be for toe first time. Between 1932 and 1S40, 80 million bags were burned.
