Closer ties between Argentina’s blueberry sector and China


A delegation of Chinese fruit importers met Argentina’s leading blueberry producers in Tucumán to strengthen ties between the two countries. The Tucumán government’s website reports that representatives of Kingberry, Earlycrop, Hortifrut Expofresh and Futucuman were present at the meeting with Chinese buyers Altaifresh Limited, Shanghai Mirong Fruit Co. Ltd. and Grupo Freshport, who were treated to visits of farms and installations. The first five pallets of Tucumán blueberries were shipped to China in at the end of September. The new Argentinian blueberry campaign has got off to a positive start with favourable weather conditions in both Tucumán and Concordia. Volumes are expected to be similar to last season’s levels of between 14,000 and 15,000 tons.
