Tridge summary

Tomato exports from our country have seen a decline of 9.6% in the current year, dropping to 18,400 tons from 20,300 tons in the same timeframe of the previous year, while imports surged from 400 to 1,100 tons. This comes amid a backdrop of decreasing tomato production in major European producers like Spain and Italy, though the Netherlands has reported an increase. In contrast, Turkey is making strides to fill the gap in the European market, with its tomato exports reaching 588,418 tons to 52 countries in 2023. The Turkish government is ambitiously aiming to elevate its tomato export value to $5 billion by 2026, leveraging the declining production in other parts of Europe.
