Vegetables Exports

Map No. 43

Spain, the Netherlands, China and Mexico are the biggest net exporters of vegetables. Together they account for 64% of worldwide net vegetable exports, as measured in US dollars worth of vegetables.

The map of net vegetable exports would have a different shape were exports measured by weight, not value in US dollars. This would particularly be the case if a territory specialised in expensive artichokes, or cheaper, but much heavier, potatoes.

"The Netherlands is the world's leading vegetable exporter. It is important to note that although they are the top exporter, they are only the 28th largest vegetable producer in the world ..." Shari Kosco, 2003

Territory size shows the proportion of worldwide net exports of vegetables (in US$) that come from there. Net exports are exports minus imports. When imports are larger than exports the territory is not shown.
