World trade in olive oil and table olives

International Olive Council

OLIVE OIL – 2015/16

Imports of olive oils and olive pomace oils in the first six months of the 2015/16 crop year (October 2015– March 2016) grew by 25 pc in China and 6 pc in the United States but fell in Brazil (−44 pc), Russia (−21 pc), Japan (−16 pc) and Australia (−5 pc). When this issue went to press, the March 2016 data were not available for Canada but its imports in the first five months of the season (October 2015–February 2016) were 2 pc up on season-before levels.

The EU1 figures for the five-month period from October 2015 to February 2016 point to a 12 pc decrease in intra-EU acquisitions versus the same period of 2014/15 and a 19 pc drop in imports from outside the EU.

TABLE OLIVES – 2015/16

In the first six months of the 2015/16 season (October 2015–March 2016), table olive imports increased in Australia (+5 pc) but fell in the other countries listed in the table below, i.e. Brazil (−14 pc), Russia (−13 pc) and the United States (−1 pc). Again, the March 2016 figures had not been released for Canada at the time of writing, but Canadian purchases of table olives during the five months from October 2015 to February 2016 were 1 pc down on the season before.

EU2 trade data for the first five months of the 2015/16 crop year (October 2015–February 2016) report a 7 pc period-on-period increase in intra-EU acquisitions, contrasting with a 4 pc decrease in extra-EU imports.
