On March, 1st 2016, the National Health and Quality Service and Quality of Agrifood (SENASA) of Argentina announced that the European Union has re-approved compliance to citrus fruit coming from Argentina. This is the result of an overall evaluation of phytosanitary and health requirements for Argentinian citrus done by EU services.
The European Commission has declared that SENASA has a good integral system of exportation of citrus and that this system is compliant with the European requirements.
In 2015 the export of fresh citric fruits to members of the European Union was over 170 thousand tons; the market is leading by lemons, oranges and mandarins. It is expected that there will be an increase of volumes intended for export in the next season.
