The growing consciousness in Western countries to adopt fruit-rich diets is one of the major drivers of the growing demand for tropical fruits which are abundant in Africa. As a result, countries like Ghana, South Africa, Ivory Coast and Kenya earn millions of dollars every year from fruit exports to Europe, the Middle East and USA. Africa is a region with year-round sunshine and a perfect climate for fruits to thrive and grow abundantly. Africa remains one of the world’s largest producers of some of the most popular fruits on the planet – citrus, pineapples, bananas, mangos and many others.
