They seek to supply the market with local produce

Paraguay: Senave will restrict onion imports

The National Quality and Plant and Seed Health (Senave) will restrict the issuance of Phytosanitary Import Credentials (Afidis) for onions. 

This regulation will be effective from October 6 to 25, approximately, depending on the local behaviour of the consumption of the agricultural product. 

Pablo Ayala, CEO of Senave, said the measure was carried out because of a request made by the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock (MAG), which seeks to strengthen local onion producers. 

"According to a report by the MAG, starting October, onion producers would be supplying 90% of local demand, so we will restrict the issuance of Afidis and watch the behaviour of local supply," said Ayala. 

Estimates are that the local onion production would amount to 2 million kilos, and that the local market demands 70 tons per day, according to data handled by MAG.
