In 2018 Ukraine’s avocado imports doubled.
“The East-fruit analysts point to a sharp increase in avocado imports to Ukraine in 2018. For 11 months, the avocado imports to Ukraine doubled and hit an all-time high. We expect that more than 4,000 tons of avocados will be imported to Ukraine by the end of the year, doubling the volume of imports in 2017,” the press service of the Еast-fruit analytical fruit and vegetable business platform said.
According to experts, Ukraine imports 92 percent of avocados from South Africa, Peru, Israel, and Kenya. The other eight percent of the total volume mainly comes from Mexico, Spain, and Chile.
