According to banana association Assobacam, in June 2019, Cameroon exported 14,205 tons of bananas. Compared with the 16,979 tons exported in June 2018, this represents a drop by more than 2,700 tons.
During the period under review, PHP, subsidiary of French group Compagnie fruitière de Marseille, exported 13,021 tons while Boh Plantations exported 1,184 tons. Due to security and financial challenges amid the Anglophone regions’ separatist crisis, CDC is still absent from the register of banana exporters in Cameroon.
The volume of banana exported in June 2019 is above that of April 2019, which remains the month with the lowest banana exports during H1, 2019.
