Brazil opens door to Peruvian mandarins and tangelos

The Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Supply (MAPA) issued Resolutions No. 28 and 29 today, which approve the phytosanitary requirements for the export of mandarins, tangelos, and chia seeds from Peru to that market.

The approval was achieved after three years of intensive coordination between the Government of Peru, through the Ministry of Foreign Trade and Tourism (Mincetur) and the Ministry of Agriculture and Irrigation (MINAGRI), and the Brazilian authorities.

Each stage's technical sanitary level was managed by the National Service of Agrarian Health (Senasa) with the support of the Commercial Office of Peru in Sao Paulo (OCEX São Paulo), which has a specialist on agricultural issues at the destination as part of the agreement signed between Mincetur, Minagri, Senasa, and Promperú.

The Brazilian market
Peru has a potential 15 million dollar market for citrus in Brazil, with significant opportunities in the border states and the Brazilian Northeast, which import these products from Argentina, Spain, and Chile.

The import of citrus can experience the same growth trend that the Peruvian grapes coming to Brazil have had, and they could even enter the country via the Interoceanic Highway.

It's worth noting that, considering the opening achieved, in 2016, the Commercial Office of Peru in São Paulo will support the commercial launch of Peruvian citrus at the Paulista Supermarket Association's Fair (Apas), and it will organize a trade mission with the Brazilian wholesaler importers.

Additionally, Peru wants that the Brazilian health authorities lift restrictions on cut flowers, cranberry, passion fruit, pepper, and pomegranate, as well as expanding the allowed tomato exporting areas.
