Located in the Middle East, Jordan is a developing Arab country with a population of more than 11 million. Geographically located at the intersection of Asia, Africa and Europe, Jordan is a country that attracts attention with its trade assets. Due to this level of development, the majority of its people live in cities, which means a new lifestyle. The healthy eating and healthy lifestyle practiced all over the world has also found its response in Jordan and avocado is at the top of the list as the favorite tropical fruit among young and middle-aged people, especially young people.
The rate of development and population growth in Jordan is in parallel, which leads to a nice increase in avocado consumption. Despite all these, there is avocado production for hobby purposes in Jordan and it is not possible for these avocados to meet the needs of the domestic market.
Jordan Avocado Imports
Avocado consumption in Jordan has been increasing year by year. When we look at world trade data, avocado imports for 2021 are slightly more than 2000 tons. Compared to the previous year, it means an increase of almost 2 times. When we look at the last 10-year period, it is seen that there has been a 4-5 times increase in avocado consumption.
Despite such a rapid increase in avocado consumption, Jordan has a very limited production due to its climate and soil structure. The remaining deficit is met by importing avocados from abroad. Lebanon has a large share in the avocado market. This is followed by countries such as Palestine, Israel, Spain, Syria and Morocco. Kenya, which has increased its avocado production significantly in recent years, stands out as the country that imports the most avocados from the African region. It has become the new main avocado importer of many countries with its cheap input costs in avocado production, its ability to supply avocados for a long season and its products with the highest product quality, and many importers in Jordan work with Kenyan avocado producers.
If we want to mention one last issue about avocado imports, the preferred trade routes for avocado imports to Jordan are generally air transportation. Avocados brought through Queen Alia International Airport are safely kept in cold storage in the cargo terminal until the date of shipment. Another route is sea transportation. The port of Aqaba is suitable for large container ships and has stations that provide electric current to cold chain containers. All these are facilitating features for avocado imports.
