Singapore is an island country in Southeast Asia. With more than 5 million inhabitants and economic prosperity, it is an exotic country that the whole world is curious about. People in Singapore are more concentrated in the cities than in the countryside, which shows that they are much more interested in a healthy lifestyle. Since the weather in Singapore is hot and humid, it has a unique palate and stands out as a country that loves to eat fruit. Among tropical fruits, avocado is of great interest among the islanders. Especially the young population often includes avocado recipes in their healthy eating diet lists. Despite all these good developments, avocado production in Singapore is very limited and it is not possible to meet the increasing demand of the domestic market. The avocados required in this regard are provided through imports.
Singapore Avocado Imports
In Singapore, locals love to eat fruit and healthy fruits such as avocados have a different taste and Singaporeans and tourists coming to the country love avocado recipes. This interest has increased year by year and when we look at world trade data, Singapore’s avocado imports for 2021 are around 6380 tons. When we look at a ten-year period, avocado imports, which were 1691 tons in 2012, show a 4-fold increase in the intervening 10 years. When associated with the promotions and Singapore’s population growth rate, it is predicted that avocado consumption will increase in the future.
Singapore imports avocados from many countries for its avocado needs. Among these countries, Mexico has a large share in the avocado market in Singapore. After Mexico, countries such as Australia, America, New Zealand and South Africa follow. An alternative country to these countries is Kenya. With its climate, geographical structure and cheap production costs, Kenya sells high quality avocados at affordable costs compared to other countries. Due to these features, many countries in the world prefer Kenyan producers as the main avocado supplier.
Another issue that needs to be known in order to import avocados to Singapore is which trade routes will be used. Avocados arriving mainly by air preserve their freshness until the date of shipment safely in the cold storages located in Changi airport. As another alternative, avocados arriving by large container ships through the port of Singapore are safely kept ready for shipment at stations with electrical connections.
