Argentina’s lemon producers have gained access to the lucrative Indian market. As of 2020, the South American country’s lemons will be able to enter India, following the signing of a protocol agreement between the two countries. A new brand “Frutas de Argentina” has recently been launched to promote Argentine lemons in the Indian market. And there is more good news for the Argentinian produce sector: India will also be receiving Argentine chia from next year.
Argentina’s lemon producing area is mainly concentrated in the north-west of the country. Last year, it exported 280,000 tons, while this year’s shipment volumes have so far reached 190,000 tons. The season is due to end in August.
