Egypt Supplies Garlic Worth $5M To Brazilian Market In Eight Months

Brazil’s Secretariat of Foreign Trade (SECEX), in a recently released data, revealed that Egypt exported over $5m worth of garlic into the Brazilian market in 2020.

The data showed that the figure was for the first eight months in 2020, making the North African country one of the main suppliers of garlic to Brazil.

Egypt first exported garlic into the Brazilian market in July 2019, earning around $2.3m by the year’s end. Since then, Egypt has become Brazil’s fifth-largest international garlic supplier behind Argentina, China, Spain and Chile.

At a point in 2020, Egypt – one of the world’s main garlic producers, in fourth place behind China, India and Bangladesh – rose to the second-largest supplier of the product to Brazil.
