The Agriculture Ministry said this Tuesday that representatives of the Embassy of Japan suspended the arrival of Japanese technicians in Brazil to inspect fresh mango. The director of the Department of Plant Protection Cósam de Carvalho Coutinho, of the Ministry of Agriculture, said the removal of the requirement demonstrates greater confidence in the Brazilian export certification, which guarantees the quality mangoes.
Japan is the fifth largest importer of Brazilian mangoes, with shipments from January to November this year of 481.700 tons, which generated USD 1,467 million. The main market is made up of countries of the European Union, which imported the first 11 months of this year 80,500 tons, which generated revenues of USD 91.8 million.
So far this year, Brazilian mango exports totaled 112,000 tons and revenues of
USD 120.9 million. Compared to the same period last year, volume fell 1.4% and revenues 3.5%.
