Ecuadorian banana exports improved in July


Ecuadorian banana sales recovered in July, registering a record figure for the month over the last five years, as reported by Vistazo.

According to data from the Banana Marketing and Export Association (Acorbanec), in July, Ecuador sold 28.9 million boxes of bananas, representing growth from July 2020.

However, from January to July, banana exports reached 223 million boxes, reflecting a decrease of 4 percent than the same time period last year. Factors in this were drops in sales in the EU (-4 percent), Russia (-6 percent), the Middle East (-19 percent), and East Asia (-27 percent).

On the other hand, purchases in the U.S., Africa, Eastern Europe, and the Southern Cone increased.
