Located in the Persian Gulf, Qatar stands out among Arab countries as a rich country with a population of more than 2.5 million and an economy based on oil and natural gas. The recent World Cup brought hundreds of thousands of people to Qatar and almost all of them sought out avocado recipes and that year saw an explosion of avocado consumption in Qatar. Qatar is a country with a high fruit consumption due to its climate and avocado is one of the most consumed tropical fruits in the country.
Despite all this good news, unfortunately there is no avocado production in Qatar. For this reason, all avocados needed by the domestic market are met through imports.
Qatar Avocado Imports
Among the Arab countries, Qatar is one of the countries with the highest avocado consumption compared to the population. When we look at the world trade data, 3172 tons of avocado imports were realized for 2021. When we look at the data of the last ten years, this import figure, which was 598 tons for 2013, has increased 5 times in 10 years. The reasons for this increase include the popularity of avocados among the young population and the great interest of tourists coming to the country in avocado recipes.
Qatar meets this increase in demand in the domestic market by importing avocados from many countries. Among these countries, Uganda has the highest market share. After Uganda, countries such as Peru, South Africa, America, Mexico, Lebanon are listed. As an alternative to these countries, Kenya stands out with its avocado production increasing year by year. It has an expanding market power all over the world due to its climate, geographical structure and cheap production cost, providing the best quality fresh avocados at the most affordable prices. Many importers in Qatar prefer Kenyan avocado producers as the main supplier.
The last issue to be known in the import of avocados to Qatar is the trade route. Avocados arriving via Hamad port can be kept here in cold storage until the day of shipment. Again, if air transportation is preferred, avocado imports are made through Hamad International Airport.
Finally, if you want to import avocados to Qatar but do not know where and how to start, we would like to introduce Latmek Exporters, one of the leading avocado producers in Kenya.
