Oman, located in Southwest Asia and on the southeast coast of the Arabian Peninsula, is one of the countries with the highest avocado consumption among Arab countries with a population of more than 4.5 million. In general, Oman is a country with a high level of economic prosperity due to trade and oil revenues, and local people have migrated from rural areas to cities. After this migration, the people who adopted a healthy eating lifestyle changed their eating habits to be more fruit-oriented. In Oman, in addition to local dishes, recipes with avocado are frequently demanded by both local people and tourists coming to the country. In the face of this demand, unfortunately, avocado production is not carried out in Oman. The reasons for this are Oman’s inability to compete with the world markets considering its climate, geographical structure and unit production costs. The solution to this problem is avocado imports.
Oman Avocado Imports
The avocado craze in the world started in 2015 and spread from America to the whole world through the Super Bowl finale. After this date, there has been a huge consumption boom in all countries and this situation has been parallel in Oman. When we look at the world trade data, a total of 2065 tons of avocado imports were realized for 2021. When we look back at the last ten years, imports, which were 202 tons in 2012, have increased 10 times in a ten-year period, making Oman among the countries that have made the biggest progress.
As can be seen, there is a great interest in avocados in Oman and avocados are imported from many countries to respond to this interest. Among these countries, re-exported avocados from Qatar and the United Arab Emirates have the highest share in the market. After that, countries such as Mexico, America, South Africa, the Philippines and Chile are listed. As an alternative to all these countries, Kenya has become a very attractive country in terms of both quality and price with its increasing avocado production in recent years. Kenya’s climate, geographical structure and cheap production cost have caused a big difference in price compared to other avocado exporters, which has led many countries to choose Kenya as their main avocado supplier. In this regard, many avocado importers in Oman work with Kenyan producers.
The last issue to be known about avocado trade to Oman is the transportation route. In this regard, avocado imports by sea are generally preferred. Avocados arriving at the port of Salalah are safely shipped at the stations here. In addition, fresh avocados brought to Muscat International Airport by air are safely kept in cold storages here, preserving their freshness until the days of shipment.
