The delay was mainly due to low temperatures in all production areas.
As a result, and as published by the Argentinian Blueberry Committee in its periodic bulletin, Argentina projects that blueberry production in week 42 will stand at around 17,000 tons, 14,500 of which will be conventional and 2,500 organic. The production will focus on the growth of organic blueberries, which are estimated will amount to 16% of the total.
The shipping rate, which is estimated at 35%, will once again beat records for this industry. Even though these blueberries will have different destinations, their main market continues to be the United States, both by sea and air. Other important destinations are the United Kingdom, Canada, and the Netherlands.
The texture and flavor of the blueberries from Tucuman stand out, as they are superior to those of its competitors. In addition, the production has an advantage, as it tends to be the first one in the world market.
