Supply of the european banana market : a new record !

Loeillet D.. 2004. Fruitrop (English ed.) (114) : p. 5-6.

The European Union set a new record in its last year as EU-15. According to Eurostat, banana consumption exceeded 4.1 million tonnes in 2003. This is 50 000 tonnes more than in 2002, that is to say growth of hardly 1.2%. The modest increase hides marked trends by type of origin. Cameroon gained new market shares while Caribbean ACP countries continued to lose ground. Ecuador went down while Costa Rica gained ground. Colombia and Panama maintained their positions. Community production decreased a little. The market supply balance remained much the same: dollar origins 63%, ACP origins 19% and community origins 18%. Per capita consumption was very slightly up at just under 11 kg. (Résumé d'auteur)
