San Daniele ham is a big success in Asia thanks to free trade agreements

September 03, 2019


Abstract : San Daniele ham is a big success in Asia thanks to free trade agreements Abstract: Non-EU market shares show positive and promising results, amounting to 46% of total exports. From January to June 2019, an increase of 2% compared to the same period of the previous year occurred..

MILAN, Sept. 2 (Class Editori) - San Daniele ham conquers the eastern markets. In the first half of the year, exports beyond the borders of the European Union grew by 10%. Among the destinations that register the most substantial increases, many are in the Asia and Pacific area. Also due to the free trade agreement signed with the European Union, imports to Japan grew by 29%. Similar percentages (+28%) are recorded in Australia, while China has totaled an increase of 14%. The market in which the highest trend was recorded is the Canadian one.

Imports have more than tripled, also due to the implementation of Ceta, the free trade agreement with the aim of strengthening commercial and economic partnerships, facilitating trade through the abolition and reduction of duties, and ensuring rules that protect and provide benefits and opportunities to all those involved.

Non-EU market shares show positive and promising 46% of total exports (compared to 43% in the same period of 2018), in the context of a slight decline in exports to EU countries that rose to 54% (compared to 57% in the first six months of 2018), confirming the trend of the margin reduction between the two geographical areas.

The entry into force of bilateral free trade agreements between the EU and third countries is certainly a positive advantage for the Italian agri-food sector. “This is demonstrated by the results obtained by the PDO Prosciutto di San Daniele in Canada and Japan,” explained Mario Emilio Cichetti, general manager of the Prosciutto di San Daniele Consortium.”Thanks to these agreements, Prosciutto di San Daniele has the possibility of being present in various markets in a protected manner. Therefore positive results are confirmed in exports, especially in the non-European market segment.”

As for exports to European Union countries, there was a slight decrease of 3% compared to the period January - June 2018. In the first six months, there were decisively positive results in some markets such as Greece (+192%), Belgium (+39%) and Luxembourg (+3%), which offset some slowdowns in other EU countries such as France (-8%), Germany (-8%) and the United Kingdom (-10%).
