Citrus Australia and Sunraysia look to increase Asia exportsLeading Victorian Sunraysia growers, packers and exporters anticipate exporting $3.5 million worth of oranges and mandarins to Thailand and South Korea over the next two years.
The confidence in this assertion stems from a recent visit to the countries, organised by the Department of Primary Industries and Citrus Australia.
Citrus Australia market development general manager, Andrew Harty, said there was good potential to increase exports to both countries, in spite of their rigid protocols with regards to citrus.
"Citrus Australia believes there is potential to increase navel orange exports to South Korea to 10,000 tonnes a year, worth about $15 million, and to almost double mandarin exports to Thailand, from 2,700 tonnes to 5,000 tonnes, in three years," Mr Harty said.
Victorian Agriculture and Food Security Minister Peter Walsh also suggested that there was future potential to be expoored in China and India.
"There is considerable potential for our fruit exporters to increase their presence in Asian markets if we succeed in building our image as a reliable supplier of high quality and safe product," he said.
