The food industry in Jordan is developed and ranks second in quality and coverage among the markets of neighboring countries.
Jordan has a favorable territorial location, which makes it an important link between neighboring developing countries. Jordan is also a member of the World Trade Organization and one of the most attractive places for investment in the region.
Domestic agricultural production provides only a small share of the country's food demand. The shortage of domestic supply is covered by the import of large volumes of grain and products of the food and processing industry. Jordan is a net importer of food: the share of imported products in the country's consumption structure is more than 90%.
Key indicators (as of 2021):
11.2 million people – the size of Jordan's population;
$ 45.3 billion - GDP at current prices;
2.0% - GDP growth;
$ 94.4 million - the volume of exports of Russian agricultural products (38.6% of the total export of Russian goods)
The estimated volume of the potential to increase the supply of agricultural products from Russia to Jordan by 2030 is estimated at $ 215 million. Cereals (wheat, barley, corn, rice), soybean cakes and meal, meat (lamb, beef, poultry), soft drinks, sunflower oil have the greatest supply potential.
