7 JULY 2022

The latest EU agri-food trade report was published on 28 June, and covers developments until March 2022. The report has a special focus on the impact of Russia’s war in Ukraine for agri-food trade in March 2022.
The import growth for the fruit and nuts category in March 2022 was led by the substantial increase in apples and pears imports (+226% in value).
EU sunflower seeds and rapeseed exports dropped by 55% and 27% respectively (in quantity) in view of the uncertainty brought by the war in Ukraine.
