In Albania, vegetables are the most exported product among food stuffs, seeing a rapid growth in recent years as a result of investments in greenhouses and increased acreages. From 2010 to 2021, vegetable exports multiplied, reaching a value of ALL 8.8 billion from ALL 464 million in 2010.
According to INSTAT data on foreign trade, vegetable exports reached ALL 8,830 million last year, down 0.4 percent compared to last year. It was greenhouse rotting of the second products' batch of the 2021 season that has led to a decrease for the first time in at least 16 years, of the exports of field products to Albania.
The situation is not at all optimistic this year either. The agricultural chain since production, storage, processing and export does not expect growth in 2022.
