Significant growth in Mexico’s greenhouse vegetable industry

According to a new Rabobank report, Mexico’s production and exports of protected-agriculture vine vegetables, such as tomatoes, cucumbers, and bell peppers, have grown significantly in recent decades. This is thanks to the country’s competitive advantages, such as favorable climatic conditions and labor availability.

Growth had also benefited from government support programs, price premiums for field production, and competitive labor costs. These allowed new businesses to emerge, including small family-owned greenhouses, but have kept the industry largely fragmented.

Vertically integrated fresh produce multinationals, greenhouse-specific input suppliers, and post-harvest technology and solutions providers can count on sustained growth in greenhouse vine vegetable production south of the US border for years to come.
