Fresh Perspectives Issue 12. Mapping different supply chains of fresh produce exports from Africa to the UK.

Abstract

The UK, with a population of 60 million has become a sizeable market for fresh produce from sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). This is because of its seasonal marketing windows, attractive prices, diverse consumption patterns and rising demand for specific fresh produce. This paper seeks to provide a detailed map of the supply chains of African fresh imports in the UK, quantifying volume and value traded, the people who depend on them for a living, as well as the current trends in sourcing.
