Portugal: Steep fall in rocha pear exports

the National Federation of Fruit And Vegetable Producer Organizations (FNOP) warned today that the port worker strike is causing a decline in revenue for rocha pear producers of close to a million Euro weekly. 

FNOP's president, Domingos Dos Santos, informed that "less than 1,000 tonnes of pears, around 50 containers, are being exported weekly, which is causing a decline in revenue of a million Euro every week."

According to Dos Santos, the port worker strike "underway since mid-August with both partial and shift-based strikes," is especially affecting "exports to Brazil", a market drained through Spain.
