The Moroccan tomato to save the shortage in Europe?


This year, tomato production in Europe is catastrophic. A situation that could benefit Moroccan tomatoes, the importation of which is subject to quotas imposed by Brussels.

Faced with the shortage of tomatoes in most European countries, driven by unfavorable weather conditions, Moroccan tomatoes seem to be the only alternative to meet growing demand.

In France, Belgium and the Netherlands, large tomato-producing countries, there is a reduced supply and increased demand, which explains the rise in prices, says RFI in a column.

A situation that makes Laurent Berger, president of the Association of Tomato and Cucumber Producers, fear Moroccan tomatoes.

As a reminder, Brussels has protected European producers by imposing quotas on the import of fruit and vegetables from Morocco. Following Brexit, several European trade organizations asked Brussels this summer for a review of the agreement and a reduction in quotas for imports of Moroccan tomatoes.
