Argentinian Blueberry to China, Boosting Exports in 2018

Date:2018-02-28 14:02:34

According to a global survey, Asia would be the region with fastest economic in the world over the next 10 years. In China, rising fresh fruits consumption provided the impetus to blueberry’s high market potential. In the first 11 months of 2017, China imported about 10 thousand tons of fresh blueberries, mainly from Chile and Peru. China’s own blueberry production significantly falls short of market demand. On the other hand, its season lasts between March and September. During winter months, supply shortage is even more pronounced. Argentina’s blueberry season starts from September and lasts till mid January. Hence for China, importing from Argentina would help fill a big gap in supply.And earlier, on December 28, 2017,China has given permission to import to Argentina’s blueberries and dried peas.

Exporting blueberries to China spells good news for Argentina. Blueberry growing area in the country is forecast to expand to 5,000 hectares, an increase of 50% compared with year ago. Blueberry’s export volume is also expected to increase to 57,000 tons, a hefty 30% increase. Over the next three years, export volume would rise to 10,000 tons. How to reduce costs related logistics and import duty would be an important task for Argentina’s blueberry exporters.
For the Argentinian fruit exporters, China always comes to the first to start their business and fulfill global marketing in view of its largest population and consumption power. In this case, Mr.Jaime J.Goldaracena, Consul General of Argentine Consulate in Guangzhou has teamed up with 2018 Guangzhou International Fruit Expo to attract Argentinian merchants market into China and Chinese importers to Argentina.
