Togo: 12,000 t of Mangoes Exported in 2022

(Togo First) - Togo exported 12,800 t of mangoes last year, up from 10,400 t the year before. The data comes from the Interprofessional Council of the Mango Sector (CIF Mangue). Exports made up 25.3% of the country's total output in 2022.

Year on year, Togo produced 31% more mangoes last year than it did in 2021. That year, reports show that the country produced 38,500 t. 

In the past three years, Togo's mango production rose gradually, despite Covid-19 and the pressures it induced. The resilience is attributable to processing which increased over the three-year period. There are about ten processing units in Togo, and in 2020, 2021, and 2022, they processed 8,000 tons, 12,800 tons, and 10,200 tons respectively.

The main varieties produced in the country are Kent, Palmer, Eldon, and Somnole. All five regions of Togo produce them, but the maritime and central regions have the highest concentrations.

The maritime region produced 17,700 tons in 2022, with the cities of Vogan, Tsevie, and Badja as production hubs. In total, 136 producers contributed to the production effort in this coastal region of the country.

The central region, the country's top production region in 2022, claimed 20,980 tons or 41% of the national output. Sotouboua, Sokodé, Adjengré, Tchamba, and Sada are the main production centers there.

The Plateaux region produced 8,050 t. In the region, Kpalimé, Agou, Lavie, Kpélé, Agbonou, and Sada are the biggest producers.

The Kara and Savanes regions respectively contributed 1,650 tons and 2,120 tons of mangoes in 2022.

It is worth noting that the Togolese Ministry of Agriculture and stakeholders in the mango sector recently adopted a five-year investment plan for the mango sector. Under the plan, the country will pour 1.715 billion to develop the sector over the period concerned.
