Mexico: Lemons generate 750 jobs in Tamaulipas

Tamaulipas has become the country’s leading exporter of lemons in recent years. This has been a challenge for growers in the region, particularly to maintain a leadership both in production and in the quality process.

Miguel Rivera Arias, president of the Tamaulipas association of citrus exporters, said that there were more than 5,000 hectares dedicated to the production of this citrus in the state, and that this citrus had earned a place on international markets, such as the US and Canadian market, thanks to its quality.

In addition, the state’s infrastructure has allowed it to have at least eight agro-industries operating in it, primarily in Victoria, Güémez, Padilla, and Hidalgo.

These industries have personnel that is dedicated exclusively to the screening, selection, and packing of the citrus for transportation and exportation through the international bridges at the border of Tamaulipas, especially through Reynosa.

Nearly750 temporary workers are needed to operate the processing plant during the period between August and December, resulting in a significant economic impact in the region.

The companies also create additional wealth for the region, as they need products and services from other companies, such as food, packaging, transportation of staff, and local and international transportation of the fruit.

The governor of the state said that producers had his support because it was important for Tamaulipas to continue managing the lemon so that it can be exported to the northern European market and that it can compete in quality with other producing areas, such as Chile and California.
