CBI presents latest market insights at largest trade fair for food

CBI joined efforts with partners from Germany’s Import Promotion Desk (IPD) and the Swiss Import Promotion Programme (SIPPO) in the largest food event of 2019, the ANUGA fair in Cologne. Consultants from CBI at ANUGA presented specific developments and trends in the European processed fruit and vegetables, and the grains and pulses industries.

What is the demand for processed fruit and vegetables in the European market?

European imports of processed fruit and vegetables grew steadily in the 2014–2018 period, but dropping slightly in 2018. A considerable share of these imports comes from developing countries. The leading European importing countries are Germany, the Netherlands, France and the United Kingdom, which offer particularly good opportunities for developing country suppliers. The products with the most potential currently are cashew nuts, frozen fruit, canned tropical fruit, peanuts, tropical fruit juices and walnuts.

Nutri-Score – a promising initiative in nutritional quality labelling

European consumers are increasingly watching what they eat - counting calories, reducing sodium and sugar intakes, for example. They also want to see health and nutrition facts on product packaging. The processed  fruit and vegetable industry in Europe is following this trend by launching innovative products and informing consumers about food characteristics on labels. One of the most promising developments in this area is the Nutri-Score label.

Agrofood Moldova

In Moldova, CBI is implementing an export promotion project in the Moldovan agrofood sector.

Value Chain Analysis for Processed Fruits from Burkina Faso, Mali and Ivory Coast

Executive summary


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.
