Andalusia's vegetable export volume decreased in all categories between September and December

In the first four months of the 2022/23 campaign, i.e. from September to December, Andalusian tomato exports have decreased by 11% in volume and 8% in value over the same period of the previous campaign. According to data shared by the Observatory of Prices and Markets of the Junta de Andalucía, exports to the EU decreased in volume by 11% and exports to non-EU destinations decreased by 15%.

Andalusian pepper exports decreased by 11% in volume but increased by 7% in value over the same months of the previous campaign. Pepper shipments to the EU decreased by 11% while shipments to non-EU countries, although insignificant, increased by 4%.

Cucumber exports decreased by 3% in volume but increased by 27% in value; it should be noted that non-EU exports experienced a significant increase in September, despite having little relative importance.

Zucchini exports decreased by 24% in volume but increased by 9% in value. Finally, aubergine exports decreased by 19% in volume but, just like zucchini, also increased by 9% in value.

Citrus exports
Citrus exports are also an important Andalusian export in the last quarter of the year. However, citrus exports in the new season have also decreased as Andalusia's production decreased significantly.

According to a report by the Observatory, between October and December, orange shipments -which accounted for 70% of the total citrus volume exported in the first three months of the campaign- were down by 26% in volume and 18% in value over the same period of the previous campaign.

Mandarin exports, which accounted for 20% of the total Andalusian citrus export volume in the period, contracted by 15% in volume but increased by 3% in value.

Lemon exports decreased by 20% in volume and 16% in value. Meanwhile, grapefruit exports, which only account for 2% of all exports, marked the only positive trend among citrus fruits in that period with a 13% increase in volume and a 5% increase in value.

It's also worth noting that, despite all the challenges faced by the mango sector this season, mango exports between August and December 2022 increased by 4% in volume and 15% in value over the previous season.
