During the first two months of 2023, over 55,000 tons of fresh vegetables were imported. The import of vegetables increased by almost 6% compared to the same period in 2022.
The increase was mainly due to the import of potatoes, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, and cauliflower. However, there was a decrease in the import of cabbage, radish, and lettuce.
According to data, almost 75% of all fresh fruits imported were citrus fruits and bananas. Apples accounted for a significant share of 12% of all imported fruits.
