Argentina is one of the main players in the global market, with more than 20 years of export experience. Its geographical location has a counter-season crop as an advantage, which allows us to supply products during periods of low production in the countries of the Northern Hemisphere.
Over the last years, the blueberry industry has changed a lot, especially due to the arrival of several new producing countries which has made the market more and more competitive. The good news is that worldwide demand continues to grow, thus each producing country will face the challenge of finding its place in this new international scenario.
ABC is a non-profit civil association that has represented the blueberry sector of Argentina for more than 10 years. Members of the committee account for more than 85% of blueberry exports of the country.
As of 2012, and with the aim of integrating the entire chain, three producer associations in Argentina are incorporated into ABC as institutional partners, which in turn gather local producers from the production regions of the country, namely: APAMA AC (NEA) – Producers Association of Mesopotamia Argentina; APRATUC AC (NOA) – Association of Producers of Blueberries of Tucuman and CAPAB AC (Bs. As) – Chamber of Producers of Blueberries and other Berries.
The continuity of the group shows strong commitment to overcoming the challenges that the sector has been facing for some time. Challenges are to improve the conditions of competitiveness and also continue differentiating our fruit for its flavor, and renew and further strengthen the commitments in labor, social and environmental matters.
