Morocco exported a volume of around 214,500 tons of vegetables up to November 22, experiencing a 15% year-on-year increase.

According to data from the ministry, the country's tomato exports increased by 3% totaling 117,400 tons. Exports of peppers and chili peppers also performed well with a volume of 19,400 tons, i.e. 27% more than in the 2019-2020 campaign.
