Global Imports of Tomato Products, Updated June 7, 2022

08/06/2022 - François-Xavier Branthôme - Architecture of Trade
Monthly pace of tomato paste imports remains high 
The total quantities of tomato paste imported by the Top20 importing countries over the past twelve months (March 2021 – February 2022, pending on Russian results) were approximately 27,000 mT (1.7%) lower than in the previous corresponding period, but 108,000 mT (8%) higher than the average of the same periods of the three previous marketing years.
As a reminder, the average monthly quantities imported by Russia over the corresponding periods of the past three years amounted to just over 10,000 tonnes.
