Okanagan, British Columbia
Canadian cherries set to blossom in new marketsDuring an report on the annual review, more than 130 members of the BC Cherry Association were told that Okanagan cherries may soon find markets in South Korea and Japan, following their success in China.
Suhkpaul Bal, who was elected to another term as Association president, spoke of the Association’s goal to ensure cherries as one of the premier crops grown in Canada. The Association represents growers, marketers, packers, researches and industry members and sponsors research to grow and deliver top-quality cherries to markets around the world.
Mr Bal also revealed that the Canadian Food Inspection Agency had adopted the Association’s market access committee model as the standard for its commodity groups. “We’re doing something right,” he said.
Pentictonherald.ca reports that currently, the Chinese demand exceeds Canadian supply. However, young plantings in China are anticipated to increase that country’s production. Plans to export cherries to Korea are moving more quickly than was previously thought; a pilot project might be possible as early as 2019. Initial work is also being done to enter the Japanese market.
