Global Exports of Tomato Paste, Updated November 28, 2022

28/11/2022 - François-Xavier Branthôme - Architecture of Trade
Comparison of monthly exports of tomato paste (HS code 200290) over past two years, comparison with the previous three marketing years

With a total quantity slightly higher than 3.283 million metric tonnes (mT) of tomato paste exported over the period September 2021 - August 2022, TOP10 exports of tomato paste were lower (-1.4%, about 46,800 mT) than in the previous twelve months (September 2020 – August 2021) period.
The twelve-month activity level of TOP10 exporting countries thus was also 93,500 mT higher (2.9%) compared to the same period of the three previous years.
The data available for global exports (3.503 million mT) over the full marketing year (September 2021 – August 2022) show that despite a slight slowdown compared to the same period last year, global trade activity for the time being maintains higher levels (over 6%) than in the three years preceding the Covid pandemic.

The ten countries presented accounted for 94.5% of the sector’s total exports on average over the last five years, with the remaining 5.5% distributed over approximately 80 countries.

For each of the ten countries (China, Italy, Spain, USA, Portugal, Chile, Turkey, Ukraine, Greece, and Iran) that play a significant role in international trade, Tomato News presents a comparison of the monthly performances for exports of tomato paste over past two years. For greater clarity, the histograms present (blue dotted lines) the curve of the average activity of the same months of the three previous marketing years. 

This situation makes it possible to follow the evolution of national export dynamics and to compare recent performances with those of equivalent periods of the previous year. These elements of international trade also give a better understanding of the quantities on which the average values presented in our articles on tomato paste prices were constructed.

Global trade of tomato products is the subject of a complete dossier published in the TomatoNews Yearbook 2021/2022, which was distributed free of charge to the attendees of the Tom
atoNews’ Conference organized in Parma as part of the CibusTec Forum on October 25 and 26.

All attendees received a free copy of the 2022 Processed Tomato Yearbook. Additional copies can be ordered at a price of 100 euros (inc. p&p) here
The transcripts of most of the presentations will be published over the next few weeks, but the conferences and slides presented by all speakers are already available here (video) and here (pdf).
