The volume of fruits exported to other countries grew by 21.39% in the first four months of this year compared to the same period in 2020. The data is taken from the 5th Prohort Bulletin released this Tuesday, May 18, by CONAB (the national food supply company).

In terms of value, the sales increased by 23.22%. Europe is the leading destination for Brazilian fruits, with the three largest consumers being the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and Spain.

Apples grew more than 100% in sales. In the last two years, shipments of fruit between January and April were below 30,000 tons. This year, India, Bangladesh, and Russia have already imported around 60,000 tons.

Brazil also registered an increase in watermelon sales. The volume exported over the first four months of 2021 was 28,350 tons, an index 24.61% higher than the same period in 2020. According to CONAB, the appreciation of the dollar, the excellent quality of the fruit, the shorter Spanish watermelon production cycle, and weak domestic demand are all factors that influence this result.
