Moroccan tomato shipments to Russia have decreased by 99.86% in 5 years

Tomato exports from Morocco to Russia have fallen by 99.86% in just 5 seasons. According to data prepared by Hortoinfo, Morocco has gone from selling 126.48 million kilos of tomatoes to the Russian Federation in 2016 to only 181,000 kilos in 2021.

Russia's main tomato supplier in 2021 was Azerbaijan, which sent 138.26 million kilos to the country. Ten years earlier, in 2012, Azerbaijan ranked eighth among Russia's tomato suppliers. That year, Turkey ranked first with 360.65 million kilos, followed by China with 79.23 million kilos, and Ukraine with 77.8.

At that time, Vladimir Putin had not vetoed vegetable imports from the EU Member States, so it's interesting to see the Netherlands ranking as the fifth supplier of tomatoes to Russia with 51.78 million kilos, followed by Spain with 42.45 million kilos, and Poland in seventh place with 36.87.

Azerbaijan, which last year was the largest supplier of tomatoes to Russia, ranked eighth in 2012 with only 35.95 million kilos of tomatoes.
