Colombian banana exports rise 2.5% despite weather issues

In spite of challenges with the weather conditions, Colombia’s banana exports rose 2.5% in 2018, reaching just over 100 million boxes worth around US$859 million, according to the Augura association, whose members represent 78% of the total volume. Bananas represent Colombia’s third-largest agricultural export after coffee and flowers.

Due to the El Niño effect, the crop didn’t reach its full potential in all production areas throughout the year. The Augura Association is now working on developing a country-wide label to grow in markets and open new destinations. The first few months of this year are expected to be dry in Colombia, meaning production will not be at its maximum.
