Foodstuff


Rich in culture and cuisine, Cyprus is now making its mark in the food industry. The favourable climate is of course a major contributing factor in the huge variety of food that the island produces.

Cypriot food manufacturers have invested in the latest technology, enabling them to produce value-added processed as well as fast frozen food. In addition, the introduction of vigorous policies on food safety has helped promote premium quality produce. Increased interest in health means that corners cannot be cut at any stage of the production process.

Exports of processed food in 2016 accounted for 65% of total domestic exports. Nevertheless, exports of foodstuff, including fresh fruit and vegetables, to the British market represent around 80% of the total exports to the UK, proving the importance of the sector in trade between the two countries. Halloumi has been the leading export product to the UK in the last years, representing 62% of the total exports in 2016. 

As well as appealing to the Cypriot community in Britain and to British customers with established tastes for the island’s food, the products have proven appeal for customers of supermarkets, delicatessen, farm shops, food halls and independent retailers who are looking for products which are tasty and different. The unique range of foods available from Cyprus fills all these requirements. It’s because of the size of this market that Cyprus has developed reliable, efficient and competitive export facilities.

The Cyprus Trade Centre invites British importers and distributors for an all expenses paid visit to the island, including travel and accommodation, to explore the possibility of trading with Cypriot exporters.

The main foodstuff available for exporting are the following:

Halloumi

Snacks/bakery/frozen products

Olive oil

Traditional products

Meat products
