Peru’s Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation (Minagri) on Thursday reported that the National Agricultural Sanitation Service (Senasa) is holding technical meetings with the General Administration of Customs of the People's Republic of China (GACC) to facilitate the entry of Peruvian agricultural products to that country.
The health authority has been handling the entry of agricultural products such as pomegranates, bananas, pecans, blueberry plants and processed fruits.
Senasa's head Miguel Quevedo: "Led by the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation, Senasa continues its field activities, protecting family agriculture nationwide and managing greater opportunities for Peruvian producers at the international level."
In order to authorize the entry of these products to their markets, authorities in each country conduct the respective risk analysis, both for pests and diseases, in order to establish health and phytosanitary measures for the import or export of products of plant and animal origin.
Senasa aims to ensure agricultural health nationwide and provide Peruvian producers a great alternative for commercialization, which generates greater profitability and an improvement in the quality of life for their families.
