Irish Fruit & Vegetable Import Volumes from EU Continue to Grow
In total, Ireland now imports just under 1 million tonnes of fruit and vegetables every year. Twenty to thirty years ago this figure would have been under 600,00 tonnes.
The largest export of fruit and vegetable to Ireland was traditionally Great Britain with over one quarter of total imports. Since Brexit, fruit and vegetable wholesalers and importers in Ireland have increasingly shifted to mainland EU as preferred supply routes.
The Netherlands and Spain as countries of origin have seen significant increases in volumes and value of fruit and vegetables exported to Ireland.
The UK landbridge remains a highly reliable and efficient supply route for EU goods transiting GB to Ireland. Rotterdam and Hoek have seen significant volume increases in Benelux fruit and vegetable product being shipped via GB to Ireland while Spanish produce continues to flow into the huge international marketplaces like Rungis in Paris through Calais, UK and into Ireland.
