Brazilian banana exports fell in 2022.

As for intra-Mercosur exports, the amount was 73.9 thousand tonnes, down 16% in the same period.

According to Hortifruti/Cepea, the decrease in exported volume is due to a low national supply of dwarf bananas, which made domestic sales difficult, as well as climate impacts and less-intense crop handling practices (due to the high cost).

On the other hand, the revenue generated from exports to Mercosur increased by 14% in 2022, as the low supply on the whole bloc boosted average prices.
