Ukrainian apples go to India.
On Thursday, 4 October, the press service of the Association “Ukrsudprom”.
Ukrainian apples harvest in 2018 could be delivered to India, subject to compliance with phytosanitary conditions.
It is noted that the Indian side have identified the special conditions of export of Ukrainian apples, in particular their exposure to the date of shipment from Ukraine at 0° for 13 days, which should be stated on the phytosanitary certificate.
“India is able to fully replace the Russian market, which was the main for Ukrainian apples until 2014, and also will lead to the need to improve the technology of cultivation and storage that was not required for the Russian market, since the transit time to India – about a month”, – said the head of the Association Ukrsudprom Dmitry Baby.
Also, in his opinion, this will lead to the development of Maritime logistics fruit, when exported from Ukraine, will significantly increase the trade turnover between Ukraine and India, given the size and significantly higher cost of Ukrainian apples compared to, for example, crops that are exported to India.
Recall that this year Ukraine has set a record for the export of apples. In season 2017/18, Ukrainian producers of apples shipped to foreign markets 40,9 thousand tons of fruit, or 3.2 times more than in 2016/17.
