Argentine Organic Citrus Regains Market Access to EU after 20 Years

Argentina’s National Agrifood Health and Quality Service announced this week that Argentine organic citrus will once again have access to the EU after a 20-year hiatus. As part of the market access agreement, the EU has agreed to allow the use of sodium bicarbonate as a post-harvest treatment for the export of organic citrus fruit.

Argentina currently has 8,258 acres of organic citrus qualifying for export to the EU. When Argentina had market access between 2001 and 2003, it exported 2,500 MT of organic citrus to the EU, consisting mostly of oranges and lemons.
