Good things are happening to the Mexican agricultural business sector. As published on The Yucatan Times, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) is currently amending regulations to allow the importation of Hass avocados from all areas of Mexico into the continental U.S.; and now the general manager of the National Association of Exporters of Berries declares that there are many buyers worlwide specially interested in Mexican grown raspberry, blackberry and blueberry.
The general manager of the National Association of Exporters of Berries (Aneberries), Blanca Nelly Partida, said that the Splendor Produce company would send a first container with half a ton of Mexican-grown raspberries to Dubai this week.
These berries are grown in the state of Jalisco, which is destined to become one of the largest suppliers of these fruits for the Arab countries.
“There are many buyers in the Arabian Peninsula that are especially interested in raspberry, blackberry and blueberry imports.” Partida said. “This first shipment will serve as a logistics test for future shipments.”
In turn, Hector Padilla Gutiérrez, the Secretary of Rural Development of Jalisco said that this opens a new segment of opportunities for the producers of agri-foods in the state, as this market makes annual purchases of more than 40,000 million dollars.
“There is a high possibility that we will quickly have a presence in these markets in an unprecedented way. This is not usual, but it does happen from time to time,” he said.
“Authorities and companies in the Arabian Peninsula are also interested in Mexican-grown avocado, sesame, chia, mango, banana, and limes,” he added.
Currently, Mexican agricultural exports to this region only amount to 20 million dollars, and the country has 45 commercial schemes to export food to this trading bloc, which has 47 million consumers.
