APQA approves entry of Chilean Hass avacados in South Korea

The Chilean Minister of Agriculture, Antonio Walker, announced that the South Korean health authority, the Animal and Plant Quarantine Agency (APQA), has approved the entry into that market of Chilean fresh Hass avocados. The Minister stressed that “this is very good news for our avocado producers, since we are now at a very good time of the season. A couple of steps are still needed, like sending a list of those interested in exporting avocados to South Korea, in addition to waiting 30 days for the start of shipments, but we would already be in a position to start by late October.”
