Albania imported 980 tons of coffee and 280 tons of cigarettes in October

Albanians are known for their strong connection with cafes and bars, but how much coffee and cigarettes do we consume?

According to the data of the General Directorate of Albanian Customs, 980 tons of coffee and 280 tons of cigarettes were importedonly in October. This is the highest figure of these two products during this year in Albania.

The import figures of these two products have increased significantly from the same period a year ago, where in October 2019 were imported 565 tons of coffee and 5 tons of cigarettes.

It seems that the pandemic has greatly affected the lives of residents as the import of hygiene products such as soap has reached over 50 thousand tons. Albania is ranked the first country in the world as regards the number of cafes and restaurants per population.
