Morocco’s revenues from vegetable exports to Poland up 100 times in just 5 years!

Morocco has been actively increasing its vegetable exports to Poland in the past five years, as reported by EastFruit. The revenues from the exports have grown almost 100 times and reached $2.7 mln in 2022!

Tomatoes took the largest share in the Moroccan exports to Poland, as they are its most important category of total vegetable exports. Poland turned out to be one of the most interesting markets for the development of the Moroccan tomato exports, and tomatoes account for about 9% of the total vegetable imports in Poland.

Poland imports tomatoes mainly from Spain, the Netherlands, Italy, Germany, and France. Since 2018, Morocco has made a significant progress in its tomato exports to Poland and become the 28th largest supplier in 2022.

However, Poland is not the only country that has shown a considerable progress in the development of the Moroccan vegetable exports.

The Moroccan vegetable exports to Romania were quite low before 2020. However, then they started growing and jumped to $1.3 mln in 2022 (up 80 times since 2018).

In contrast to Poland, tomatoes accounted for just 6% of the Moroccan vegetable exports to Romania. Meanwhile, bell peppers head the list with the share of 93%. Bell peppers are also the second most important category of the total vegetable exports from Morocco.

Romania imports vegetables mainly from Turkey, the Netherlands, Spain, Poland, and Hungary. Morocco is now the 21st largest supplier after ranking 43rd just five years ago.

Norway is also rapidly rising the vegetable imports from Morocco. In 2018, Morocco only exports limited quantities of potatoes to the Norwegian market. In 2019, exports fell to zero. However, in 2020, Moroccan growers returned to the Norwegian market with tomatoes and bell peppers. Since then, the trade volumes have been growing.

Tomatoes now account for the share of 97% in the Moroccan vegetable exports to Norway. The revenues from exports grew 57 times and reached $1.3 mln in 2022. As a result, Morocco has become the 20th largest supplier of vegetables to Norway, which imports them mainly from the Netherlands, Spain, and France.

Moroccan vegetables are also gaining popularity in the Czech Republic, with bell peppers and tomatoes as the leaders (the shares of 50% and 47%). Zucchini exports were active before 2020.

In 2022, the revenues from the Moroccan vegetable exports to Czechia totaled $2.5 mln, a 35-fold increase since 2018. Morocco is now the 18th largest supplier of vegetables to the Czech Republic, while the list of leaders includes Spain, the Netherlands, Poland, France, and Italy.

Belgium has also increased vegetable imports from Morocco since 2018. The revenues of the Moroccan vegetable exports to the Belgian market have grown 43 times and reached almost $4 mln. Thus, Morocco became the 23rd largest supplier.

Tomatoes account for more than a half of the Moroccan vegetable exports to Belgium. The rest is represented by herbs, potatoes, bell peppers, carrots, onions, zucchini, cucumbers, etc.

The five countries account for just 0.5% of the total vegetable exports from Morocco, and the trade volumes are much lower in comparison with France, Spain, UK or the Netherlands. Nevertheless, they show the most rapid growth rates, and this fact opens longer-term opportunities.

In 2018-2022, the revenues from the Moroccan total vegetable exports amounted to $5.3 bln, with tomatoes and bell peppers accounting for the most important parts. The list of importing countries included more than 80 markets.
