Around thirty-five Tunisian companies are taking part in EXPOLIVA 2021, the World Trade Fair for the promotion and development of the Olive and Oil Sector, which opened Wednesday in Jaén, Spain (September 22-25).
The Tunisian stand, which covers an area of more than 32 m², puts on display olive products and samples of Tunisian products. It will also shed light on the agricultural investment climate and opportunities available.
Tunisia’s olive oil exports reached 1, 377 million dinars (MD) in value and about 166,000 tonnes in volume by late July against 1,505.6 MD during the same period last year.

Exported quantities reached 4,400 tons of organic olive oil at an average price of 12 dinars/kg and 26,781 tons of olive oil in bulk valued at 74 MD.
