No more tomatoes to Saudi Arabia

Daccache Green Line’s ten hectares are spread over four plots on Mount Lebanon, where the rough terrain does not allow for large, uninterrupted plots of land. Yet, the company still manages to harvest 1,500 tons of tomatoes per season. Most are marketed locally, with Class I and Class II products destined for super and hypermarkets and the lowest quality sold at wholesale markets. Its packaging methods are adaptable to cater to specific customer preferences, ensuring flexibility in the product offerings.m, vehicula nec vehicula sed, convallis scelerisque quam.

DGL harvests 1,500 tons of tomatoes annually

Some volumes are exported to the Gulf States, too, but since Saudi Arabia’s 2021 ban on Lebanese fruit and vegetables, overseas sales have declined. DGL is thus turning its gaze toward the European market, where tomato supplies decrease somewhat in October and November.

Situated in Lebanon, the strategic geographic location of DGL provides access to both Gulf and European markets. The company operates within a unique export window during August, September, October, and November, a period when most neighboring countries are unable to produce, making it a prime exporter. “Drawing from our extensive experience, we have successfully engaged in exports and direct trade with retailers. Our track record includes collaborations with a wide array of customers, both within our local market and across Europe and the Middle East.”
