As the campaign is being launched, Interfel, the trade association of fresh fruit and vegetables, has announced the reinforcement of its interprofessional agreement on fresh walnuts with new provisions, thus guaranteeing the quality and excellence of this unique product for the consumer.
The interprofessional agreement on fresh walnuts is evolving and consolidating, reflecting the commitment of the entire fresh fruit and vegetable sector. The agreement now includes labelling conditions on the preservation of the product, which contributes to spreading good practices better.
The ripeness criteria to respect in order to market fresh walnuts remain the same: a batch of fresh walnuts will only be allowed on the market if at least 80% of the inner median of the walnut is completely brown.
The agreement that applies to the 2021-2023 campaigns was extended by order dated May 11th, 2021, published in the French Official Journal.
