Moroccan food exports to UK up almost 40% post-Brexit

Moroccan food exports to the United Kingdom have increased by roughly 40% since January 2021, more than 80% of which are tomatoes and citrus fruits.

Chris Woodward, British Consul General and Department for International Trade Director to Morocco, stated that the UK currently imports 25% of its tomato needs from Morocco.  According to Woodward, vegetables and fruits topped Moroccan exports to the UK in 2021, with a total value of £ 312.6 million while cereals were on top of Moroccan imports from the UK (£ 23.3 million).

Moroccan watermelon and cucumber exports to the UK have continued to increase in the past year, he added.  In October 2019, the two countries signed a post-Brexit Association Agreement; the deal entered into force in January 2021.  Under the bilateral agreement, Rabat and London vowed to maintain and consolidate trade relations as well as increase bilateral trade volume.
