Global Imports of Tomato Products, Updated December 15, 2022

15/12/2022 - François-Xavier Branthôme - Architecture of Trade
Monthly pace of tomato paste imports remains higher than those recorded before the Covid pandemic.
The total quantities of tomato paste imported by the Top20 importing countries (*) over the past twelve months (1.61 million mT, September 2021 – August 2022) were approximately 126,000 mT (8.5%) higher than in the previous corresponding period (1.49 million mT), and 237,000 mT (17%) higher than the average of the same periods of the three previous marketing years (1.38 million mT).
Comparison of monthly imports over past two years
Along with its monthly summaries of the prices for pastes and canned tomatoes and of the performances of the world’s main tomato paste exporting countries (see linked articles below), Tomato News is presenting updated figures of the supply volumes shipped each month by the main consumer markets for tomato products.
For tomato paste, alongside the combined figures for the Top20 importing countries, this article presents data for France, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia and the United Kingdom; canned tomato imports for Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands and the UK; and finally sauces & ketchup imports for Canada, France, Germany and the United Kingdom. This provides a regular and representative overview of the situation and trends of global demand.
