Bahrain is an island country in the Middle East with a population of more than 1.5 million and its unique style attracts many tourists. In Bahrain, which is a very rich and developed country due to oil and natural gas revenues, locals love to experience different tastes in addition to local flavors. The growing interest in avocados all over the world has also found a response in Bahrain, and Bahrainis migrating from rural areas to cities have made healthy eating a priority in their new lifestyles. The most important thing in this regard is that there are plenty of avocado recipes in diet lists and both Bahrainis and tourists coming to the country frequently consume avocado recipes.
Despite such good information, avocado production is not possible due to factors such as Bahrain’s climate, geographical structure and production costs. Despite this, imports are made from abroad in order to meet the ever-increasing avocado consumption in the domestic market.
Bahrain Avocado Imports
Bahrain is one of the countries with high avocado consumption compared to its population. When we look at world trade data, a total of 1249 tons of avocado imports were realized in 2021. When we look at the last ten years of data, avocado imports, which were 203 tons in 2011, have increased 5 times in the last ten years. If we want to talk about the future of this increase, it means that avocados will be consumed much more in the future due to the increasing avocado interest of the young population in Bahrain and the parallelism of population growth.
In response to the increase in demand in the domestic market, Bahrain meets this deficit by importing avocados from many countries. Mexico has the highest market share in this regard. After Mexico, countries such as America, Peru, South Africa, Australia, Chile are listed. As an alternative to these countries, Kenya draws attention with its increasing avocado production all over the world. Many countries in the world prefer Kenyan producers as the main supplier for avocados due to Kenya’s climate, geographical structure and cheap production costs, as well as high quality avocado production and affordable prices.
One last issue that should be known about avocado imports is the means of transportation. In Bahrain, avocado imports are generally carried out by sea transportation. The port of Mina Salman is large enough for large container ships to dock easily and has many stations that can provide electricity to cold chain containers. Another alternative is air transportation. Fresh avocados brought to Bahrain International Airport can be safely stored in cold storage facilities until the day of shipment.
