Ghana increases its banana exports to Europe

According to dailyguideghana, the country’s 62,000 tonnes of banana exports to the European Union in 2011 was a jump from the previous year’s 52,000 tonnes. This, which represents a small slice of the global banana market, is far less than the quantities exported by African banana export leaders Ivory Coast and Cameroon, according to UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) figures.
Exporters in African and Caribbean in 2010 exported a total of 450,000 tonnes, representing 23% of the market share with almost all of the African supply coming from only two sources: Côte d’Ivoire and Cameroon ,and marginal quantities originating from Ghana.
According to FAO statistics, total export of bananas accounted for 15 million tonnes in 2010 valued at over US$7 billion. The European banana market is the largest in the world, with about 5.5 million tonnes imported per year. Since 2006 when the EU opened its market, there has been a rise in exports of between 2 and 5 percent annually.
