The Ministry of Food and Agriculture (MoFA) placed a temporary ban on exports of some vegetables to the EU market in September, 2015. The affected vegetables include capsicum, solanum species- aubergines, momordica, luffa and lagenaria (gourd family) which did not meet the standards of the EU market because they were rotten by the time they got to the European market.
