The export of Tunisian organic products has increased significantly over the past 10 years, from about 5,000 tons in 2002 to 21,064 tons in 2013. It largely developed with the export of fruits such as dates, pomegranates, apricots, almonds and pistachios. Olive oil continues to dominate the market - Tunisia was the world's largest exporter of olive oil in 2015.
