Fresh Fruit & Vegetables


With an ever widening range of fruit and vegetables, Cyprus has justifiably gained the reputation in international markets of The Garden of the Mediterranean.

Fresh produce crops include a full range of citrus fruit, grapes, melons, potatoes, vegetables and aromatic herbs. During 2016, exports of fresh fruit and vegetables accounted for 15% of total domestic exports to the UK. The main export products were potatoes (£7.8 million), vegetables (£2.2 million) and citrus (£1.8 million). 

Production of fruit and vegetables has been further enhanced by the completion of a massive irrigation scheme which has opened up additional 50,000 acres of fertile coastal land.

A Government Inspection Service operates closely with both producers and exporters to ensure that strict international standards are maintained. All exports conform to EU regulations and the produce is inspected at packing house level and ports, before the necessary phytosanitary and quality control certificates are issued.

Citrus fruit, grapes, melons, potatoes, vegetables and herbs are marketed by more than 30 fresh produce packers/exporters, most of whom are substantial producers on their own right.

Specially tailored labelling for supermarkets and wholesale buyers is a facility which is becoming increasingly available by Cypriot exporters. Sea transport with reefer vessels is available from Limassol and Larnaca. Highly perishable crops are transported by air.

The main fresh fruit and vegetables available for exporting are the following:

Potatoes
Citrus fruit
Grapes
Melons
Vegetables
Aromatic herbs
