(Business in Cameroon) - Between August and July this year, Cameroon’s banana exports rose to 28,434 thanks to higher volume exported by Plantations du Haut-Penja (PHP), local subsidiary of Compagnie fruitière de Marseille.

According to figures from the country’s banana association (Assobacam) the company exported 4,000 tons more in August, up from the 8,672 tons a month earlier, accounting for nearly 75% of export volume during the period.

Meanwhile, Cameroon Development Corporation (CDC), the market's second-leading company, exported only 5,534 tons, including 4,046 tons exported in July. The reason of this poor performance is the current unrest in the South-West region where the company owns all its plantations. The market’s minor player Boh Plantations exported 1,967 tons of bananas (1,164 tons in August and 803 tons in July).
