Germany, located in Central Europe, is an important market for avocado imports with a population of 83 million and a strong economy. When we look at the reasons for this situation, the fact that the working population is concentrated in cities and that they have a conscious society about healthy nutrition come to the fore. Of course, in addition to the vitamins and nutritional values of avocado, it is also one of the most preferred fruits in sustainable nutrition with its creamy taste and numerous recipes that can be included in all diet lists.
In Germany, the young and middle-aged population frequently consume avocados, while tourists visiting the country prefer to consume avocado recipes in addition to local flavors. Although all these increase avocado consumption, unfortunately, Germany’s climate and geographical characteristics are not suitable for avocado production, so the demand of the domestic market is met by importing avocados from abroad.
Germany Avocado Imports
Avocado production in Germany is a hobby for a few enthusiasts and unfortunately it is not possible to reach the high demand and quality required by the domestic market. In this regard, Germany imports avocados from many countries. If we look at world trade data without moving on to countries, Germany imported over 122 thousand tons of avocados for 2021. When we look at the last ten years, imports, which were 30 thousand tons in 2012, have grown 4 times in 10 years. If we look at the countries from which Germany imports avocados to meet the increasing interest in avocados year by year, Peru comes first. This country is followed by countries such as Chile, Spain, Israel, South Africa and Colombia.
With increasing avocado production all over the world, Kenya stands out among avocado exporters. With its low production costs, climate and product quality, many countries are starting to prefer Kenyan avocado producers as their main avocado supplier on a cost-effective basis. This is also the case in Germany.
One last point to mention about avocado imports is the means by which avocados are imported. Avocado imports to Germany mainly come by air. Fresh avocados arriving at Frankfurt Airport are safely kept in cold storage in the cargo terminal until the moment of shipment. Avocados, which are also imported by sea, are brought to the port of Hamburg, where they are safely kept in electrically connected stations until the moment of shipment without breaking the cold chain.
