Morocco one of the main canned food suppliers to the United States

An American study by IndexBox reveals Morocco to be the 9th most important exporter of canned fruits and vegetables to the United States.

The Top 10 exporters account for 85% of American imports (the Top 3 representing 41%). Of the 779,000 tons of canned food imported in 2018 (+ 1.5% over 2013-2018), Spain supplied nearly 21%, which makes it the main supplier to the United States. Greece and India come second and third, with 11 and 9% of the American imports respectively.

Next come, in order, China, Peru, the Netherlands, Italy, Turkey, Morocco, Egypt, Thailand and France.

American imports reached 1 billion USD last year, which is 3.4% more over the 2013-2018 period. “The average import price of canned fruits and vegetables was 1.3 USD/kg in 2018,” according to IndexBox.

Greece is the country with the highest prices (2 USD per kg), while India has the lowest prices (0.728 USD per kg).
