Tunisia: land of opportunities in the Mediterranean


Tunisia’s great advantage is its proximity to Europe and the short trade routes that involves. In addition, this North African country has undertaken a great deal to get itself fit for the European market. The number of processing facilities that meet European quality standards is constantly growing, as is the share of organic farming. Thanks to its favourable climatic conditions, Tunisia is an attractive procurement market for natural ingredients.

In the tourism sector, Tunisia convinces with more than just its gorgeous Mediterranean beaches. Tour operators specialising in alternative cultural tourism should definitely include Tunisia in their programme: Berber villages in the Sahara, medinas with their oriental flair, the holy city of Kairouan or the archaeological heritage of Carthage – these are just a few of Tunisia’s many touristic highlights.

Whether you wish to import natural ingredients or are on the lookout for sustainable tourism offers for your customers: With IPD-vetted companies in Tunisia at your side, you will have reliable partners to whom you can build up long-lasting business relations.


  • Proximity to Europe
  • Attractive tourist destinations for your customers
