Argentina: Blueberry producers from Concordia will benefit from a new cargo airport

The members of the Association of Argentine Fruit Growers of Mesopotamia (APAMA) met with the municipal president of Concordia, Enrique Cresto. In the meeting, the official told producers the advances being made in the work to transform the airport of Concordia into a cargo airport. When told that Governor Gustavo Bordet had secured funds for the work through the IDB, the head of APAMA, Alejandro Pannunzio, said: "We are satisfied and grateful because it is a great step for our exports."

"Air freight is particularly important for the harvest's second stage. The first stage involves the early fruit, and it is shipped by boat while the fruit of the northern hemisphere ends. Air cargo would increase our competitiveness in the second stage as our fruit would arrive to other markets in a timely manner and in an optimal state. It would allow us to show the quality of Concordia's blueberry production to the most demanding markets, such as the United States, which massively consume fruit towards the end of the year. The fruit of the third stage would be shipped by sea, to lower its costs, as it comes out at a time that market prices are low and otherwise it wouldn't be possible to market it," APAMA stated.
