Cameroon banana exports reach 17,137 tons in November 2018

According to Assobacam, Cameroon’s national banana association, the nation’s banana shipments reached 17,137 tons in November 2018. Of this amount, Société des Plantations du haut Penja, local branch of Marseille fruit company, exported 15,821 tons, ten times more than Boh Plantations which shipped only 1,316 tons.

Since September 2018, the Cameroon Development Corporation (CDC) has exported no bananas due to the Anglophone crisis-related violence that forced the company to shut down production sites. The Cameroonian employers group (Gicam) claims that these sites became training camps for separatists, says an article on businessincameroon.com.
