Ukraine, which is located in Eastern Europe, attracts attention with its different style among the countries that are located on the Black Sea coast with a population of 45 million and historical beauties. Although the war with Russia has put the country in a difficult situation, the Ukrainian people are still able to have food and other needs despite all these negativities. Before the war, the majority of Ukrainians lived in cities and were very careful about healthy eating. Avocado consumption, especially among the young population, is the biggest indicator of this. Despite the war in Ukraine, the whole world is supporting the Ukrainian people against Russia in terms of access to food, and this includes tropical fruits such as avocados.
Ukraine is currently at war and cannot produce avocados for itself. Therefore, the avocados it needs come through imports.
Ukraine Avocado Imports
The consumption of avocados is increasing every year all over the world, and Ukraine is no exception. The increase in the young population and the healthy eating lifestyle ensure that avocado recipes are more frequently included in diet lists. At the same time, the fact that tourists coming to the country prefer avocado products in addition to local flavors creates a driving force in this regard. If we want to look at this information a little bit numerically, according to world trade data, Ukraine imported approximately 14 thousand tons of avocados for 2021. When we look at 2012, this figure is 1623 tons. In other words, avocado consumption in Ukraine has increased 8-9 times in the past 10 years.
Since there is no avocado production in Ukraine, avocados are imported from many countries to meet this demand. Among these countries, Israel has the largest market share. Israel is followed by countries such as South Africa, Spain, Chile, Colombia, Mexico. Kenya stands out as an alternative country to all these countries. With its climate, geographical location and cheap production costs, Kenya can produce the highest quality avocados at the most affordable price. Due to this feature, many countries in the world prefer Kenya as their main avocado supplier.
The last point to be known about importing avocados to Ukraine is the transportation route through which this business will be carried out. Avocado imports are mainly carried out by air transportation, in this context, avocados arriving through Boryspil International Airport can safely keep fresh avocados in the cold storages located in the cargo terminal. Another alternative is to import avocados by sea transportation through the port of Odessa.
