Mexico's E.U. food exports climb by 30%

Mexico's food exports to the E.U.rose 30% year-on-year between January and September, reaching US$951.5 million.

Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Rural Development and Fishing (SAGARPA) data showed exports for the same period in 2010 were US$733.9 million.

France, Germany, Italy and Spain were among the main importers of products such as strawberries, fruits, vegetables, edible oils, meat, lemon, cocoa, coffee, beer, seafood, amaranth, onions, peppers, milk and flour.

Agribusiness promotion under secretary Ernesto Fernández Arias, said from January to September the country's agri-food balance registered a surplus for the first time of US$57.8 million.

SAGARPA is attributing the country's success to promotional programs such as the Mexican Fruit Fare Attraction held in Madrid last month which generated sales of US$6.14 million.

Table grapes, garlic, chillies, dried chillies, rambutans, prickly pears, Persian limes, avocadoes, bananas, mangoes, papayas, mango pulp, as well as dried and canned cactus were among the products pushed.
