Peru has authorised imports of Spanish citrus and persimmon, providing a welcome boost for Spanish producers. Peru’s Ministry of Agrarian Development and Irrigation (Midagri) authorised imports of fresh mandarins, oranges and persimmon that have been subjected to cold treatment. Spain’s Agriculture Ministry said the move opens the door for exports of other products to Peru and other regional markets. Midagri said exports will be able to start once cold treatment processes have been verified.
