Tunisia: Gasbi pomegranate price lower than last year
There are several factors that can affect the price of products in the domestic market. The demand and the supply are usually among them; however, this year, the most determining one for Gasbi pomegranates, Tunisia's most popular variety, has been the devaluation of the Dinar against the Euro or Dollar. "This year, it is possible to buy one kilo of our pomegranates in the international market for 1.50 Euro," explains Mohamed Beyrem Mansour, of Bayrem Trading.
Most Tunisian pomegranate growers export their fruit, as is the case with this company. In their case, about 80% of pomegranates are shipped to destinations such as Lebanon or Algeria, which is easy, because they are neughbouring countries. Tunisian pomegranates are also imported by countries such as Qatar and Oman, Gulf countries which "don't mind paying the high prices for Gasbi pomegranates from Tunisia."
