The world is changing rapidly and as people’s level of awareness increases, they are incorporating healthy eating and sports into their lives more and more. 100 years ago, there were not many industrial factories and industrial facilities. As such, agriculture and manual labor were predominant and there wasn’t as much chemical and air pollution. All this together meant that it was commonplace for people to have access to healthy food and to be active all day long. But now times have changed and the population is migrating from rural to urban areas.
One such development is taking place in Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan declared its independence after the collapse of the Soviet Union and thanks to its natural gas, it is becoming an increasingly prosperous country. The increasing interest in avocado all over the world has found a response in Azerbaijan and avocado, which has become a daily dietary habit thanks to its creamy taste and vitamins and minerals, has become a highly demanded tropical fruit.
Azerbaijan Avocado Imports
Despite the increasing demand for avocados in Azerbaijan, this deficit has to be met by importing avocados from abroad, as its production is at very low levels. If we want to speak numerically, in 2021, Azerbaijan imported about 250 tons of avocados. If we compare this figure with the previous year, it will be possible to talk about a 20% growth. If we want to look further back, the explosive effect of avocados in Azerbaijan was caused by the Super Bowl event in 2015, which led to a 500% increase in demand that year.
South Africa ranks first among the countries importing avocados to Azerbaijan, followed by Peru, Turkey, Colombia, Israel, Israel, Spain, Chile and Kenya, all exporting avocados with varying market shares.
Avocados are shipped to Azerbaijan by air and sea transportation. In air transportation through Heydar Aliyev International Airport, the cold storages in the cargo terminal ensure that avocados remain fresh and safe. Again, since Azerbaijan has a coast to the Caspian Sea, avocado imports can be realized in Baku Port with merchant ships coming from different routes.
