Indonesia: Extension of South Africa’s horticultural exports

The Republic of Indonesia has extended South Africa’s recognition status. This enables the latter to export horticultural products through the Jakarta Port of entry until 11 April 2021.

The initial recognition was granted by the Indonesian Authority on the 11 April 2016, and this was due to expire on 10 April 2018. The extension follows an application by Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Senzeni Zokwana on 27 July 2017 for an extension of the recognition of South Africa’ Food Safety Control Systems. Zokwana applied for an early extension to avoid interruption of South African exports of horticultural products to Indonesia.

According to an article on cbn.co.za, his counterpart in Indonesia, Minister of Agriculture Amran Sulaiman approved the extension. It is in respect of 14 horticultural products, namely apples, apricots, cherries, citrus fruits, grapes, grapefruit, lemons, nectarines, oranges, peaches, pears, pomelos, plums and prunes.
