Ukraine has doubled the imports of garlic in the last five years

The lack of a local industrial production of garlic in Ukraine stimulates imports. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, products that help fight various viruses and increase immunity have been very popular in the past year. One of these products is garlic, the medicinal properties which have long been known to Ukrainians, UCAB writes. That is why in 2020 the imports of garlic increased by 34% compared to the previous year and amounted to 7.1 thousand tons. Compared to the indicators from 5 years ago the imports of garlic have doubled.

The main supplier of garlic for Ukraine is China, which accounts for 73% of imports. This is completely natural, since this country is a leader, even a monopolist, in world production and exports of garlic. China in 2019 produced 76% of the world’s garlic and exported 70% of the total world’s exports of garlic.

“Ukraine ranks 10th in the world ranking of garlic producers, producing 215 thousand tons of garlic in 2019. However, it should be noted that 99% of production volumes are concentrated in households. Only 1% is produced by small producers who find it difficult to ensure stable supplies in significant volumes, for example for chain supermarkets. This leads to an increase in imports of garlic in line with the growing demand,” Svetlana Lytvyn, an analyst at UCAB, explains.
