Background and scope

This value chain analysis was commissioned by CBI (Centre for the Promotion of Imports from developing countries) in order to identify the most promising product market combinations for processed fruit from Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire and Mali.

Exporting pine nuts to Europe

Europe is the largest importer of pine nuts in the world. Pine nuts are a traditional ingredient in Mediterranean dishes and the product is benefitting from a growing consumer interest in Mediterranean cooking. Imports of pine nuts in Europe are growing. Spain, Germany and Italy are the leading pine nut importing countries. Despite the rising interest in pine nuts, consumption is fluctuating due to the unstable supply influencing prices.


Exporting table olives to Europe

Europe is the largest market for table olives in the world, accounting for more than 45% of total world imports. European imports of table olives are growing. Large importing and consuming markets such as Germany, France and the United Kingdom, or growing markets such as Belgium or the Netherlands offer the best opportunities for developing country exporters. The main growth drivers are the growing consumer interest in the Mediterranean diet and in naturally processed table olives.


Exporting canned beans and pulses to Europe

Europe is the largest market for canned beans and pulses in the world, accounting for more than half of world imports. Large importing and consuming markets such as the United Kingdom, Germany and France offer you the best opportunities. A main driver of demand is the growing consumer interest in vegetable substitutes for meat protein, as well as additive-free and convenience products.


Exporting almonds to Europe

European almond imports are growing, driven mostly by a consumer trend towards healthier living. Almonds are the leading imported tree nuts in the European market. Spain, Germany and growing markets, such as the Netherlands and Italy, offer opportunities for exporters. Food safety certification supported with frequent laboratory tests and strong corporate social responsibility (CSR) standards are very important success factors for exporters.


Exporting dates to Europe

European imports of dates are growing. Driven by a consumer trend towards healthy foods, dates are marketed as a natural source of energy and rich in nutrients. France, the United Kingdom and Germany offer the most opportunities for you as a developing country supplier. Food safety certification supported with laboratory tests and compliance with corporate social responsibility standards can provide great advantages if you are looking to increase your exports to Europe.


Exporting table olives to Europe

A new Free Trade Agreement between Peru and the EU took effect in March 2013, leading to new opportunities and intensified collaboration between the regions.

Since April 2014 the Centre for the Promotion of Imports from Developing Countries (CBI) supports export development in Peru by running an integrated country programme. By focusing mainly on agricultural sectors CBI is not only able to improve working and living conditions of farmers involved in the production of these goods, but it will also develop and spread the image of Peru as a supplier of sustainable supply chains.

Exporting tropical frozen fruit to Europe

The increasing consumption of frozen tropical fruit is driven by various factors including the growing consumer desire for convenient and faster-to-prepare foods such as breakfast smoothies. The Netherlands, Germany, France and Belgium, as well as the growing markets in Eastern Europe offer opportunities for developing country suppliers. Educating buyers about less familiar tropical fruit and how to use them can increase consumption.

Exporting walnuts to Europe

Europe is the largest walnut import market in the world, representing almost half of all imports. Driven by a consumer trend towards healthy eating, European walnut imports are growing. Walnuts are marketed as ‘good for the brain’ and rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Italy, Germany and Spain offer exporters the most opportunities. Introduction of light kernel varieties, food safety certification, and following corporate social responsibility standards can provide you with large advantages over your competitors.
