EU total export value increases, but drops in wheat


The value of exported wheat and other cereals by the EU-28 has dropped last year. At the same time, the total export value for the EU-28 increased.

This is according to the latest figures from the European Commission. For the 12-months period December 2015 to November 2016, EU agri-food exports reached a value of €130.7 billion, corresponding to an increase by 2% in value terms compared to the same period one year ago.

The monthly value of total EU agri-food exports in November 2016 reached a new record level of €11.7 billion. This is €813 million higher than in November 2015, and about €1.5 billion higher than in the same month of previous years.
