The Fresh Fruit and Vegetables industry is booming. Healthy and convenient living trends are boosting the consumption of fruit and vegetables and exotic fruits and vegetables are becoming more and more popular. Lebanon offers a wide range of fruit and vegetables. Some of these crops, such as avocados, have great potential on the European market. The Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and Russia offer opportunities for a wider range of products from Lebanon (for example, table grapes, citrus, pome fruit, stone fruit, potatoes and other vegetables). The goal of this project is to help Lebanon’s strong horticulture sector to do more business in these international markets.
