Australia can be identified as the second-largest producer of almonds. After cultivating these almonds, they are exported in the form of both in-shell and kernels. As of June 2019, Australia has exported over 49,393 tonnes of in-shell nuts. Alongside this, they have also exported approximately 37,058 tonnes of kernel nuts. If the figures are viewed as a whole, Australia has exported near about 86,451 tonnes of nuts in the years 2018 and 2018. Moreover, Australia has also imported close to 178 tonnes of in-shell nuts and 4,414 tonnes of kernel nuts. Hence, imports can be counted in negative tonnes.
As Australia exports its nuts all over the world, it has been identified that China receives 39 percent of these nuts. Also, 22 percent of almonds are exported to India, while Vietnam is awarded 11 percent of theseexports. Moreover, Spain and Germany receive four and five percent of the exports, respectively. Since Australia is a significant supplier, many leading nations are dependent on Australia for their almond supply.
