In 2018, 364 thousand tons of various berries were exported from Mexico to the whole world, with a commodity value of more than 2.24 million dollars. This makes the berries one of the most exported agricultural products in Mexico, surpassed only by the typical products of the country, beer and avocados.
Typically, the exports of the “berry industry” are based on Blueberry, Raspberry, Strawberry, and Blackberry. The majority of these berries, 97.6%, find their way to the United States and Canada. However, destinations in Europe, Asia, and South America as far as New Zealand are also becoming increasingly important as export countries.
To further network the industry and increase global exports, the 9th International Congress of the National Association of Berries Exporters (Aneberries) was held in Guadalajara, Mexico from 31 July to 2 August 2019. The annual event was attended by our colleagues:
- David Scace – Global Vice President Perishable
- Pablo Rosales – HPL Regional Manager LATAM
- Ivo Skorin – CEO HPL – Apollo LAX
- Henning Pottharst – Product Manager Smart Visibility
- Antonio Garcia – HPL MX Manager
- Rafael Guerra – HPL MX Specialist
- Mario Camacho – HPL Product Manager
