Sector slowly recovering from negative impacts of the pandemic

Horti exports Zimbabwe down 10 percent in four months to April

According to the statistics from ZimTrade, Zimbabwe's horticultural exports dropped 10 percent in four months to April this year. The sector was slowly recovering from the negative impact of the pandemic. The value of exports dropped to about US$13,1 million from US$14,6 million during the same period last year, ZimTrade chief executive Allan Majuru said. Major contributors were macadamia, citrus, leguminous vegetables and fresh flowers.

The sector however picked up in 2021, recording a 6,8 percent growth between January and December during the year compared to the previous year, Majuru said, with exports growing from US$59,5 million recorded in 2020 to US$63,6 million.

Zimbabwe's horticulture sector is among the top five contributors to the gross domestic product (GDP), behind tobacco, maize and cotton, with huge potential to contribute to the overall strong growth of Zimbabwe's exports.
