Apple export diversification in Moldova not too simple

Industry sources have gleaned that Vladimir Bolea, the new Minister of Agriculture and Food Industry of the Republic of Moldova (MAIA), knows there is no alternative to traditional markets for Moldovan apples in the short term. According to him, if earlier “we exported about 95% of our apples to the Russian market”, then in the first half of 2022 their export to Russia for obvious reasons “fell to 70%, but this is still a very large percentage.”

Even though Moldovan apple producers have entered the Saudi Arabian market and are currently negotiating preferential fruit exports with the Egyptian government, the Moldovan authorities are “looking for new markets not to replace the existing ones, but to supplement them.”

Commenting on these statements by the head of MAIA, the heads of agricultural producers’ organizations note that in terms of diversifying apple exports, the country achieved good results in the spring and summer of 2022. So, Moldovan apples were exported to 18 countries during the same period last year, and this year – to 28 countries.
