Senegal: Horticultural exports exceeded 100,000 tons in 2017In 2017, Senegal exported 106,200 tons of fruits and vegetables. This is 16.7% more than the 91,000 tons of the previous year. This is the continuation of a trend recorded by the horticulture industry over some years now. Indeed, exports of horticultural products from Senegal rose from 8,900 tons in 2010 to more than 29,000 tons in 2014.
According to ecofinagency.com, about 99.5% of horticultural exports were approved by importing nations. Mangoes in particular still have a lot of challenges to overcome, mostly related to fruit flies.
The main horticultural products exported by Senegal include green beans, melons, cherry tomatoes and sweet corns. Senegal’s main export destinations are Europe and Northern America.
