(Business in Cameroon) - The two main producers of dessert bananas exported a volume of 16,135 tons in May 2019.

According to figures published by Association bananière du Cameroun (Assobacam), PHP, local subsidiary of Compagnie fruitière de Marseille, exported 14,639 tons in May 2019. During the period under review, the second operator, Boh Plantations, exported 1,496 tons.  

Compared with the volume of banana desserts exported in April 2019 (13,381tons), this represents an increase by 2,754 tons. On a year to year basis however, this represents a decrease by about 3,000 tons.

Let’s also note that even though the May 2019 performance is better than that of April 2019, it is still below this year’s monthly average which is between 19,000 and 21,000.

It is also worth mentioning that the third producer Cameroon Development Corporation (CDC) has not resumed activities it stopped in 2018, in the wake of separatists claims in the two Anglophone regions.
