IELTS Writing Task 1 - Pie Chart


The given three pie charts depict the data about the production and consumption of coffee and also give information about the distribution of the profits from it in different sectors.

Overall, it can be said that the countries that consume the most coffee are also the biggest importers of coffee. It is also surprising that the delivery sector earns more profit than any other sector.

From the first chart, it is clear that South Africa produces the maximum coffee. Its coffee production is 44% and Indonesia’s production is half of that. Japan and Vietnam stand at 18% and 16% of coffee production, respectively.

The second pie chart reveals that the maximum consumption of coffee is in European nations (41%) and the second-highest consumption is in the USA (39%). Japan needs to import only 8% of the coffee, as it is also a coffee producer. The rest of the world consumes just over a fifth of the coffee.

The profit distribution in the coffee market is illustrated in the third pie chart. Half of the total profit is earned by the delivery sector, whereas the retailers earn almost a quarter of the profits. A tenth of the profits go to the exporters and the remaining 15% profits are earned by the production sector.
