According to trade statistics, in January-August 2023, Uzbekistan’s export revenue from dried fruits reached US $43 million, which is 50% more than in the same period last year. Over 60% of this amount comes from prunes. Uzbekistan has been increasing exports of dried prunes for the second year in a row and has ambitions to eventually become a global leader of this segment.

Over the past few years, Uzbekistan’s export revenue from the supply of dried fruits averaged about $50 million:

2020 – 50.4 million;

2021 – 44.3 million;

2022 – 52.4 million

At the end of this year, the country’s export revenue from the supply of dried fruits will increase significantly, and according to EastFruit analysts, mainly due to a sharp increase in the volume of exports of Uzbek prunes.
