Argentina to ships lemons

Wed 31/07/2019 by Richard Wilkinson

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.
