Chile opens borders for papaya imports from BrazilMar, 17, 2023 Posted by Gabriel Malheiros
Chile has opened its borders to papaya imports from Brazil. This information came from the Brazilian Association of Producers and Exporters of Fruit and Byproducts (Abrafrutas).
The association’s director, Eduardo Brandão, said that the Chilean market is officially open, and it is already possible to register producers interested in exporting. Furthermore, there is a scheduled meeting with producers to discuss the implementation measures of the Work Plan for the start of papaya exports to Chile.
In 2022, papaya was the sixth most exported fruit in Brazil, according to the association. A total of 39,800 tonnes were sold abroad, leading up to a revenue of almost US$ 50 million, according to data from the Ministry of Agriculture’s Agrostat.
Espírito Santo is the primary producing state and exporter of papaya—Brazil exports to Europe, the United States, and other countries in South America.
According to Abrafrutas, the negotiations over papaya imports were conducted in partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture and the Brazilian Association of Papaya Producers and Exporters (Brapex). A control mission from Chile visited Brazil last year to verify phytosanitary control in papaya production. Two auditors from the Ministry of Agriculture of Chile (SAG) were in Espírito Santo.
Recently, Chileans have also endorsed the entry of Brazilian Tahiti lime.
