The most important European markets at a glance: FRUIT LOGISTICA European Statistics Handbook

The European Statistics Handbook, to be published this year for the first time, provides a comprehensive overview of the main European fruit-trading nations. Along with excellent reports on production quantities and import and export information, the European Statistics Handbook also introduces the specifics and trends of each market.

Europe may not be the most dynamic market for fresh produce, but it surely will remain the most important one for a long time. Worldwide, the percentage of fruit exports that go to Europe ranges between 45 per cent and 70 per cent. Besides, Europe is a big producer of fresh fruit and vegetables itself, with approximately 12 per cent of global production.

For several products, like apples or onions, Europe has switched from being a net importer to a net exporter in the last few years.
