Colombia coca leaf production and profits, 2016

Source: UNODC, Colombia Cultivation Survey (SIMCI), 2017


The UNODC survey data show the sharp increase in price (and profits) throughout the cocaine production chain, which deploys many and varied actors, from the farmers who grow the coca to the different stages of transformation and commercialization, which is controlled by local and international traffickers. Prices vary from 1 dollar per kilo of leaves to 1,633 dollars per kilo of cocaine, which is cut and sold on to European consumers for between 50 and 80 euros per gram.
