Moldova’s producers exported over 16,000 tons of cherries, worth over $22mn in 2023. The harvest season of Moldovan cherries marked a significant increase in the country’s exports to the European Union.
This year, Moldovan cherries were delivered for the first time to several countries of the European Union, such as Spain, Italy, Belgium and the Netherlands. 163 tons were exported to Great Britain.
Experts believe that 2023 can be considered favourable for producers who wanted to access new markets for cherries. This situation is due to the lower production in key competitors such as Greece, Spain and Italy. Moldovan producers thus had the opportunity to meet the demand for cherries on the EU market.
