170,000 tons exported abroad in 11 months

Bahian fruit exports grow 37%, surpassing the R$ 1 billion mark

From January to November 2023, Bahian fruit exports soared, hitting 170,000 tons and generating R$1.05 billion. This represents a 37% increase compared to the same period in 2022. The Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (Agrostat/Mapa) highlights the growth in mango and grape production, among other fruits.

Abrafrutas (Brazilian Association of Producers and Exporters of Fruits and Derivatives) attributes this growth to efforts by state and federal governments and sector entities to open new markets for Brazilian fruits. According to the president, Guilherme Coelho, the increased exports were mainly driven by favourable prices in 2023, particularly benefiting Northeast producers.

Anderson Ferreira, a mango producer from Mani├žoba, known as the mango capital, reports increased fruit exports and planting in recent years, despite logistical difficulties. Ferreira credits the nutrient-rich soil for boosting production, though he notes that high freight costs pose a challenge.

Luiz Soares, a grape producer from Juazeiro, experienced a favourable year in 2023, with increased prices and volumes in domestic and foreign markets. Soares emphasizes the importance of cooperation and improved logistics for successful export production.

Looking forward, Abrafrutas president anticipates continued diversity in fruit exports, with positive projections until 2027. He notes that Brazil is expected to meet 41% of the world's food supply by 2027, further boosting the country's exports.
