Togo: Pineapple exports stood at XOF1.5 billion in 2018

(Togo First) - Last year, Togo made XOF1.5 billion exporting pineapples. This is 50% more than in 2017, the Central Bank of West African States (BCEAO) reveals in its latest report on external trade within the WAEMU.

The increase was driven by a rise in output from 1,900 metric tons in 2017 to 3,300 tons in 2018 (+73.6%). This is a trend the sector has been recording since 2014, at the exception of 2016 when production fell.

While the BCEAO’s data suggest the country is doing well, compared to other WAEMU States, its performances remain modest. Indeed, the union exported a total of 122,800 tons of pineapples in 2018.

Let’s recall that this year, Togo commissioned an organic pineapple production unit.
