Azerbaijan’s tomato export has lowered


October 18, Fineko/abc.az. For 9 months of 2021 Azerbaijan exported tomatoes less by 23.5% in value terms and by 23.1% in quantitative terms against Jan-Sept 2020, ABC.AZ reports with reference to the State Customs Committee.

The country exported 154,980 tons of tomatoes for $167.8 million for the past 9 months. Russia's restriction for tomato import from Azerbaijan has led to a drop in exports.

Azerbaijan’s tomato exports have accelerated since May, when Russia lifted restrictions, but have so far failed to exceed last year's levels.

It should be noted that since July there has been a decrease in the monthly volume of tomato exports again.
