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.

Spanish grapes to enter China
Spanish grapes have gained access to the lucrative Chinese market. The agreement was signed in December and follows two years of work to obtain the necessary protocol. Spain is the EU’s leading producer of seedless table grapes, which are particularly popular in China. Spain is also working on finalising bilateral protocols with China for strawberry and cherries. The agreements come as demand for fruit in China is increasing.
