production Olive oil packaging rate currently accounts for 10 to 15% of domestic

Trade Minister Omar Behi said on Tuesday that Tunisia has managed to increase olive oil packaging rate, which currently accounts for 10 to 15 percent of domestic production, in an international market dominated by Spain and Italy.

This product is sold in new markets like Canada and the United States, said the minister.

Speaking at a plenary session of the House of People’s Representatives (HPR) on Tuesday, he added that the packaging capacity of olive oil was in the order of 0.1% of the total olive oil production before 1995, the year in which the export of olive oil was liberalized by opening up this activity to the private sector.

He also recalled the role played by the Fund for the Promotion of Packaged Olive Oil (Foprohoc) in the intensification of exports of this product.
