1.5 million tonnes of bananas in Antwerp dock annually

The last few years SEA-invest invested and took over a lot and this is the moment to keep it. "We are focussing on consolidation. There is also confusion about the future. At the moment the retail in the EU is placing more requirements and wants to spend less on fruit. South-Africa, among others is now focussing more on the Middle-East and other parts of the world because of this. More has to be paid for products, or we won't have them at all", according to Johan Claes, General Director.

The most important product for the Belgian New Fruit Wharf in Antwerp is the banana. BNFW is officially the largest banana terminal in the world and 2 million tonnes of fruit arrives in Antwerp annually. 1.5 millions tonnes of that are bananas.
