The Brazilian Association of Producers and Exporters of Fruits and Derivatives (Abrafrutas), an entity that participated in the delegation that traveled to China, stressed that Brazilian grapes are known for their quality and market potential and that the opening of the Chinese market represents a great opportunity for the country's producers.

"We are optimistic about this new stage. China is a promising market and opening it to Brazilian grapes marks an important step in the expansion of our exports," said Abrafrutas president Guilherme Coelho.

Fruit consumption in China has increased significantly in recent years, driven by a growing concern for health and wellness among people. For Abrafrutas, this increase in demand offers a valuable opportunity for Brazilian exporters, who can benefit from the Chinese consumer's continuous search for fresh and healthy products.
