About the product

This publication is based on the recent findings of a joint FAO/ITC/CTA study on international trade in fresh organic fruit and vegetables. It provides detailed information on the demand for these products in the world’s largest organic markets, including data on sales and imports. It also highlights prospects for further growth in the short and medium term. The publication also presents the case studies of seven developing countries that have established an organic export sector, or are in the process of doing so, namely Argentina, Cameroon, Chile, Dominican Republic, Madagascar, Papua New Guinea and Zambia. These case studies provide useful insight on how to establish a successful organic export sector and tackle the obstacles faced.
