The Dominican Republic: Main exporter of organic bananas to Europe

The Dominican Republic became the main exporter of organic bananas to the European Union in 2019, according to a report by the European Commission on the import of organic products from third countries, published in June.

The report indicates that, thanks to strong growth in the import of Dominican organic bananas in 2019, the DR positioned itself as the third supplier of all organic products consumed in the block of European countries, exceeding imports from Ecuador, Peru, Colombia, Brazil, and Mexico.

The Dominican ambassador to the European Union, Aníbal de Castro, stated that “European consumption of organic fruits and vegetables has experienced sustained growth in recent years consistent with European policies to support sustainability and protect human health and environment.”
