At the end of August, the non-storage garlic transaction entered its final phase. According to customs data, the export of garlic was rewarding in July this year. Since the beginning of this year, the volume of garlic exports exceeded 200,000 tons for the first time.
Relevant data shows that China’s garlic exports were 241,600 tons in July 2022, with a total export value of $231.89 million. Among them, the amount of fresh or chilled garlic was about 217,400 tons, a year-on-year increase of about 31.45% compared to the export volume of 165,400 tons at the same period last year. The total export value was US$175,863,400, an increase of about 4.02% year-on-year from US$169,070,800 in the same period last year.
As of July 2022, the top ten destinations for fresh or chilled garlic exported by China included Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Pakistan, South Korea, United Arab Emirates, Bangladesh and Russia.
The average purchase price of non-storage garlic during the harvest season in 2020 was around 3.44 yuan/kg. Similarly, the increase in garlic exports this year also has the same advantage of theoh price. The average purchase price of garlic in July this year was around 3.84 yuan/kg, laying a good foundation for the positive growth of garlic exports.
It was the peak season for garlic trade in July, and the huge increase in export volume also showed that the international market has a strong demand for Chinese garlic.
