Morocco ousts Spain from the throne of largest tomato suppliers to the UK

Despite the obstacles and harassment perpetrated by some Spanish organizations and farmers, who have reached the point of opposing and sabotaging Moroccan trucks transporting fruits and vegetables, Moroccan tomatoes still remain at the top of the market in many countries.

In this context, a recent international report reveals that Moroccan tomatoes have outperformed their Spanish counterparts in the UK market, with a greater quantity of tomatoes imported from Morocco compared to those imported from Spain.

Morocco has taken the lead in the list of largest tomato suppliers to the UK, after managing to overtake Spain in 2021 for the first time in history. Indeed, sales of Moroccan tomatoes on the British market exceeded 183 million euros in a single year.
