Entry of more PH pineapples and mangoes to U.S. could be allowed soon


More Philippine-grown pineapples and mangoes could enter the U.S. after the two countries’ authorities reportedly agreed to resolve pending issues on the entry of the agricultural products.

Agricultural authorities of both countries have reportedly agreed to thresh out several pending issues during a virtual meeting on Aug.12, according to a statement from the Philippine Department of Agriculture’s Bureau of Plant Industry (DA-BPI).

With this recent agreement with the USDA-APHIS, the Philippines could dramatically increase exports of pineapples and resume shipments of mangoes to the U.S. through additional ports of entry, the Agriculture department said.

Fresh Philippine pineapples currently reach the U.S. through Guam, Commonwealth of Marianas Island, and North Atlantic regions, according to the Department of Agriculture.
