Argentina: Information manual for exporters of fruits and vegetables

It took three years of intensive work, research and the organisation of information to have the manual ready, but if finally is. Last week, Mendoza's Ministry of Agro Industry introduced the information portal for exporters of fruits and vegetables. It is a website that will work as an information manual for all the companies that want to export. The staff from Inscamen, ProMendoza and SENASA prepared the site and the Federal Council of Investments (CFI) funded it.

The site: is meant to be an easy- access guide of all the requirements that the various countries to which Argentina exports, and that the SENASA certifies, have for the different fresh produce (fruits, vegetables and legumes) included in this manual.

The information on this site includes a brief explanation of each product's phytosanitary and customs requirements, as well as the maximum residue limits allowed for them and their Incoterms. The site also has contact information, by country, of the key agencies that regulate health measures for the entry of food.

The site has the most comprehensive and updated information of 108 countries in the world that import fresh fruits and vegetables, says project coordinator, Lorenzo Ferretjans, before noting that they would soon be uploading the information of ten other countries that import food.

The site doesn't have information for all the countries and products in the world; it only has information for those countries to which Argentina currently exports and that have established phytosanitary import requirements. The site also has information about products for which the market is open, but of which there are currently no exports.

Therefore there is a tab labelled "Included Countries" so that the users can verify whether or not the country they are seeking imports plant products from Argentina.
