In the first two months of the active season in 2023, Georgia exported 205 tons of figs – 25% more than last year. Export prices in FOB terms have reduced from $1.40/kg in the previous season to $1.30/kg in the current one. Still, the export price in 2023 is the second highest. Due to the large increase in the export volume, overall revenue from the ongoing season is higher compared to the record-breaking 2022. This season so far, revenues from the exports constituted $255 thousand, which is an annual growth of 13%.
