Record Italian paste shipments

This article was originally published in Foodnews

ITALIAN tomato paste exports were the highest on record for the period between January-June, reaching 333 876 tonnes in total. As well as a slight increment in shipments to the top five destinations, nearly 4 000 tonnes more were shipped to Belgium, for a total of 15 847 tonnes (+44%). Considering the impact of unrest in Libya, traditionally an important trade partner for Italy, it is all the more remarkable that Italian shipments performed so strongly: exports to the north African country took a nose-dive in the first six months of the year to 4 260 tonnes, compared with 21 182 tonnes in the same period last year (-78%).
