Morocco bans export of tomatoes and other selected vegetables to Spain

On Feb. 15, reported that Morocco banned the export of tomatoes, onions and potatoes to West Africa. In an interview with Reuters, a senior official of the Association of African Markets, a Moroccan fruit and vegetable supplier, said Fodex, the Moroccan agricultural export agency, implemented the measure on February 9, citing the need to ensure food security in the country after tomato prices rose. The current price of a kilogram of tomatoes is between 10 and 12 dirhams, which is twice as much as in December 2022. According to the mastery, European countries such as France are the main importers of Mo tomatoes, with the UK in second place and Africa accounting for only 1.3% of Mo tomato exports.
