Togo imported almost 160,000 bottles of champagne in 2019

(Togo First) - Last year, Togo imported 159,702 bottles of champagne (of 75 cl) for more than €3.1 million. 

In West Africa, the country was the third-largest importer of champagne over the period reviewed. First was Nigeria with 569,440 bottles imported (€18,153,942) and Côte d’Ivoire with 348,955 bottles (€5,935,560). 

Behind Togo were Ghana, which imported 102,070 bottles (€2,808,685), Benin (83,599 bottles for €656,944), Burkina Faso (59,355 bottles for €1,285,067), and Senegal (€52,364 bottles for €975,817). 

Across the continent, South Africa is the largest consumer with over a million bottles purchased in 2019 - up by 1.6% compared to the previous year. 

The figures, reported by the Ecofin Agency, were published by the Comité Champagne which is a trade organization that manages the common interests of ‘vignerons’ and champagne houses. 

Let it be noted that overall, African nations imported more than 3 million bottles of champagne last year. These cost around €89.85 million.
