Togo : In 2018, cashew exports to the EU grew by 128%

(Togo First) - In N’Kâlo’s latest report on the cashew market, it was revealed that Togo exported 267 tons of cashew nuts to the European Union in 2018. This is against 118 tons in 2017 (+128%).

Going further back, Togo had exported 190 tons of the nuts to the Union, the report indicates.

While volumes sent to the Old Continent are on the rise, those headed to the US have fallen. From 2017 to 2018, they were slashed by 50%, from 246 tons to 122 tons.

However, total cashew exports from Togo to the two regions increased by 7% from 364 tons to 389 tons, between 2017 and 2018. This reflects a similar trend in West Africa which produces around 45% of the global output.
