European banana producers in the outermost regions are concerned about a possible oversupply if import tariffs are also reduced for Brazilian and Mexican bananas, following a similar move with Peru, Colombia and Ecuador.

Despite problems with the EU market and adverse winter conditions, Ecuador recorded a 2% year-on-year increase in banana exports during the first quarter of 2019, shipping 95.3 million boxes.

The fall in shipments is attributed to cheaper competitors like Guatemala.
