Poland increased onion exports by 60% in 2022

According to the Polish Central Statistical Office (GUS), onion exports from Poland increased by 60% in 2022 compared to 2021 (+26 000 tonnes), while wholesale prices increased by 2.9 times, writes AgroTimes, citing Agro Nawigator Banku PKO BP.

The media explains that this was due to high demand in Ukraine (+23 000 tonnes), where there was a significant decrease in onion production because of the war. The shortage of supply of onions is also recorded in some EU countries where the production decreased due to drought. For example, this is relevant for Spain, where the current onion harvest has decreased by 40% compared to last year.
