Netherlands still the largest exporter of fresh vegetables

Onions are the most exported vegetable (2.4 billion kilos), followed by tomatoes (0.9 billion), bell peppers (0.4 billion) and cucumbers (0.4 billion). The Netherlands also exported 2.4 billion kilos of fruit, 2% down from 2008. The most exported fruits are apples and pears (400 million kilos). Re-exporting fruit and vegetables is becoming increasingly important for the Netherlands: in 2000, 34% of the total quantity of exported fruit and vegetables originated in other countries; by 2008, the figure was up to 52%. Thirty-two percent of exported fresh vegetables are in fact re-exports, and 87% of exported fruit.
