Which countries increase imports of Moroccan fruits and berries the most rapidly (up to 244 times in just five years)?

Morocco has been rapidly increasing its fruit and berry exports, with some destinations showing triple-digit growth rates, reports EastFruit.

For example, the Moroccan fruit and berry exports to Ireland had been minimal but started growing actively in 2020. As a result, in 2018-2022, the export revenues from the Moroccan exports to Ireland grew 244 times and reached almost $3.5 mln in 2022.

Mandarins, Morocco’s most exported fruit category, account for more than three fourth in the exports to Ireland. In addition to mandarins, Ireland imports oranges from Morocco and several berry categories since 2021.

Such growth rates allowed Morocco to move up in the list of Ireland’s suppliers of fruit and berries from the 47th position in 2018 to the 20th one in 2022, with the leaders represented by the Netherlands, Spain, the UK, and France.

Hong Kong is also among the countries with the most rapid growth rates in fruit and berry imports from Morocco. Blueberries are now the most exported category. By the way, EastFruit previously reported that Morocco was the fourth biggest exporter of cultivated blueberries globally in 2022. Morocco exports blueberries mostly to the European markets, but new export channels are also gaining importance.

In 2018-2022, the revenues of the Moroccan fruit and berry exports to Hong Kong have grown 37 times and reached $6.8 mln. Morocco also became the 22nd largest supplier of fruits and berries to Hong Kong.

Latvia is also among relatively newly opened markets for Moroccan exporters. In 2018, they exported just a few shipments of mandarins to the Latvian market. In 2019-2020, the exports amounted to zero, but then started growing again. In 2022, the revenues totaled $770,000, with blueberries accounting for the largest part.

Latvia imports fruits and berries mostly from the EU countries, such as the Netherlands, Lithuania, Poland, Spain, Germany, etc. Morocco is just the 41st largest supplier.

Austria is another market with growing popularity of Moroccan fruits and berries, with watermelons accounting for the absolute majority of exports. By the way, watermelons are the second most important fruit category for Moroccan exporters after mandarins.

In 2022, the revenues of the Moroccan fruit and berry exports to Austria totaled $500,000, a 25-fold increase since 2018. Morocco also became the 23rd largest supplier of fruits and berries to Austria.

EastFruit previously reported of rapid growth rates in the Moroccan vegetable exports to Norway. However, this country has also been increasing the imports of fruits and berries from Morocco, especially blueberries. The total revenues from the Moroccan fruit and berry exports to Norway have grown 20 times and reached $10 mln in 2022. Norway imports mostly blueberries, mandarins and frozen raspberries from Morocco.

Morocco was just the 13th largest supplier of fruits and berries to Norway in 2022 (the 35th in 2018), while the group of the top five exporters included the Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Poland, and Sweden.
