Cameroon: significant decline in banana exports

The Cameroon Banana Association (Assobacam) reported a 13394-ton drop in its banana exports between September and October 2018. Only 29,747 tons of bananas were exported during the past two months, whereas last year, 43,141 tons had left the country. This drop in exports is proportionally equivalent to the volume of bananas exported during the same period in 2017 by the Cameroon Development Corporation (CDC).

As mentioned in a previous article, the CDC saw its activities drop as a result of the violence that was taking place in the North West and South West regions. The company, the second largest employer after the state, had to close more than half of its production sites.

Assobacam reported that exports from the last two months were mostly provided by the Plantations du Haut-Penja (PHP) and Boh Plantations companies (27,688 tons and 2059 tons, respectively). PHP is a subsidiary of a Marseille fruit company. Its banana exports have increased by 537 tons, compared to the same period in 2017. While at Boh Plantations, they show an increase of 2059 tons over the same period, that is to say an increase of 511 tons compared to last year.
