(Business in Cameroon) - Banana exporters in Cameroon sold 16,109 tons of fruits in September 2022. Compared to the 20,471 tons sold in September 2021, this makes a decrease of 21.3% YoY.

In detail, according to the national banana association (Assobacam), Plantations du Haut Penja (PHP) sold 13,791 tons in Sep. 2022; 21.6% less than the 17,597 tons in Sep. 2021. The second-largest exporter CDC ended the month with 1,246 tons of bananas, against 1,580 tons in the same period last year (-21.1%). The third market operator, Boh Plantations (BPL), exported 1,072 tons of bananas in September 2022, down 17.15% compared to 1,294 tons a year ago.

This drop in performance is a real setback considering the upward trend observed since 2020 when CDC returned to the market after a hiatus due to insecurity in the Southwest. Indeed, in September 2020, the three exporters totaled 17,939 tons of sales. The volume exceeded 20,000 tons in September 2021, and Assobacam was expecting the same evolution this year, especially since forecasts were optimistic with abundant and sufficient rainfall.
