In the first 10 months of 2017, the Romanian imports of agricultural and horticultural watering appliances (TARIC code 84248210) reached almost 12.17 mEUR, while the Bulgarian imports of the same agro-technology reached almost 4.24 mEUR.

"Tomatoes Grown in Protected Areas" was the program launched by the Romanian Ministry of Agriculture at the beginning of 2017, in order to increase the greenhouses and solariums areas in Romania. This has proved to be a highly appreciated program by vegetable growers.

According to official data, the quantity of fresh tomatoes delivered in 2017 by the Romanian beneficiaries of the program exceeded 50,000 tons and the amount paid to the over 8,000 vegetable growers was about 24 mEUR.

In 2017, 4,397 beneficiaries were registered in the first production cycle of the program, and in the second cycle, a number of 3,627 beneficiaries.

Recently, the Ministry announced that all tomato growers in protected areas will also benefit in 2018 from the minimis aid scheme, namely 3,000 euros / beneficiary / year. Also, important sums from the state budget will be allocated via the Measure 4.1 - Investments in Agricultural Holdings - to support the construction of greenhouses and solariums for vegetable crops growing in protected areas.

A success story is a Romanian greenhouse recently inaugurated, the largest in the last 12 years. More than 2.5 mEUR, of which 500,000 EUR from EU grants, have been invested in the 16,000 sqm project. The greenhouse has state-of-the-art high-tech technology and focuses on tomato growing.

In Bulgaria, the open areas planted with vegetables rose by 37.7%, to 45,420 ha and the greenhouse area by 8.3%, to 968 ha in 2016 vs. 2015.

Some recent greenhouse projects in Bulgaria are mentioned in the HortiDaily news at: http://www.hortidaily.com/article/32506/New-greenhouse-projects-implemented-in-South-Bulgaria

The Bulgarian Greenhouse Growers’ Association (BGGA) consists of 51 owners of 272,7 hectare greenhouses in the country and 26 associated members which are companies with related business – vegetable seeds, greenhouse systems and equipment, substrate production, mineral and organic fertilizers, packing and sorting machines, greenhouses developers, service and maintenance companies. More details at https://bapop.org/en/

Some of the Romanian importer-distributors specialised in greenhouse technologies include Lantec Industries, Ascomex, Harmonya Garden Plus, Magnum Dynamic Grup, Hidrotechnika, Huns Industry, Pro Master Sound, Adviso Trading and Ecotech Chemicals.

Are you interested to export seafood to Romania? Who are the main importers and distributors of fish and seafood in Eastern Europe? How to export seafood to Romania or Poland or Hungary? How to find the best fish products buyers in Serbia or in Bulgaria?

In the first nine months of 2017, Romania imported 5.4% more fish and seafood than in the same period in 2016. This is consistent with the increasing demand for quality foods as well as the increasing purchasing power of the Romanian consumers.

Thus, over 56 thousand tons of fish, crustaceans and molluscs were imported from the EU as well as non-EU countries in the first nine months of 2017, according to the data of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MADR) provided at AGERPRES request.

The value of imports of fish, crustaceans and molluscs and other aquatic invertebrates exceeded 134.2 mEUR between 1 January and 30 September 2017, while in the same period in 2016 it amounted to 118.67 mEUR for a quantity of 53,154 tons.

According to Ro-Fish - the Romanian Association of Fish Processors, Importers, Distributors and Traders - Romanian fish market is covered 82% from imports and only 18% from the domestic production of fish. The most sought-after fish species in Romania are marine, such as macro, sprat and cod, and also freshwater species, trout, carp and caraway.

Romanians consume about 6 kilograms of fish per person annually, almost four times less than the average of the European Union. By comparison, Bulgarians and Hungarians consume 2.5 kilograms of fish per person per year. These figures are currently increasing, due to better lifestyle and health food education.

Romania produces annually 18,000 tons of fish, including aquaculture. Romania's fishing area currently ranges from 80,000 to 100,000 hectares only, much below the surface 25 years ago.

According to research made by FRD Center based on official statistic data, Romania has imported fish and seafood (crustaceans, molluscs and other aquatic invertebrates) in 2014 mainly from:
the Netherlands: 16.6 million EUR
Spain: 15.1 million EUR
Poland: 13 million EUR
Italy: 12.3 million EUR
Sweden: 10.8 million EUR
Turkey: 8.1 million EUR
Hungary: 6.4 million EUR
Denmark: 5.7 million EUR
Germany: 5.6 million EUR
Vietnam: 5.4 million EUR

More details in the Romanian Food Market Report produced by FRD Center for the Royal Netherlands Embassy and published at https://www.dutchromaniannetwork.nl/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/Food-Report-Romania-2016.pdf

Romanians appetite for imported quality foods increased 9.5% in the first nine months of 2017 compared to the same period of 2016, reaching EUR 5.21 billion. Romania is the most dynamic economy in Europe, having registered a 8.8% GDP growth in Q3 2017 and a GDP growth of 7% for the first nine months of 2017.
