Mexican produce reaching international markets

As a way to avoid being violated by President Donald Trump economic policies, Mexican producers will export tomato, chili peppers, cucumbers and eggplant to the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia, Japan and China.

"The economic scenario presented to us by the President of the United States forces us to accelerate the search for new markets and certifications in the coming months," said Alfredo Díaz Belmontes, general director of the Mexican Association of Protected Horticulture (AMHPAC).

Relying on a single market, as with Mexican vegetable producers, "you become vulnerable," despite having a good sales position in the United States, warns the businessman.

"Three years ago we began a process of finding new markets to diversify business portfolios, to be less vulnerable and to find a greater profitability", says the president of AMHPAC.

He adds that in Mexico he sows and produces world-class food, so we are attractive to any market and palate: "We close one door but two are opened, according to the study of ProMexico conducted a year ago new markets opened such as the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia, Japan."

The first open door was given a few days ago, when a request for the purchase of vegetables from Japan arrived, which is being evaluated to be sent in the next few days, the official said.

"We know that China, because it is a large economy, we assume that demand can be enormous. Russia was sent 100 tonnes of tomato in 2016, but in a country with 140 million inhabitants, demand could be even higher, "he says.
