Global Trade of Tomato Paste, Updated 16 November 2020

18/11/2020 - François-Xavier Branthôme - Architecture of Trade
Comparison of monthly exports over past two years
For each of the ten countries (China, Italy, Spain, USA, Portugal, Chile, Turkey, Ukraine, Greece, Netherlands (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.
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.
The end of the 2020 harvest season coincided with a major update (two or three additional months, depending on the case) of the global trade statistics, now up to date until October for the majority of the countries presented.
The increase in the level of export activity, directly linked to the CoVid pandemic crisis, is easily identifiable for most countries, particularly in Europe and a few neighbouring countries, over the months of March and April 2020.
China: last 12 months down 9% from the previous 12-month period
Italy:  last 12 months up 1% from the previous 12-month period
Spain:  last 12 months up 7% from the previous 12-month period
USA:  last 12 months down 10 % from the previous 12-month period
Portugal:  last 12 months up 6% from the previous 12-month period
Chile:  last 12 months up 29% from the previous 12-month period
Turkey:  last 12 months up 15% from the previous 12-month period
Ukraine:  last 12 months up 1% from the previous 12-month period
Greece:  last 12 months down 3% from the previous 12-month period

In the case of the Netherlands, it is important to note that this country does not have an agricultural production of processing tomatoes or an industrial first transformation industry, but only companies producing second-step tomato products (type sauces) from imported tomato paste. Tomato pastes imported into the Netherlands are mainly of Italian, Spanish or US origin. The quantities mentioned here correspond to re-exports.
Netherlands:  last 12 months up 26% from the previous 12-month period
