ABRIL 2021. For the third consecutive year we have exported lemons to Russia. This time it was an operation of 112 tons (four containers) whose commercial and administrative process had the particularity of being entirely solved by the Production and Foreign Trade areas of Paramérica, in direct contact with the Russian buyer.
The fruit, which was exported under the NoniLemon brand, came from the first 2021 harvest, more precisely from the production of the Yatasto, Adela, Yánima and Nonino farms. All Paramérica’s own establishments are located in the provinces of Tucumán and Salta, in northwestern Argentina.
It is worth mentioning that Paramérica entered the citriculture business only five years ago, in 2016. But its growth in the sector was faster and more effective than expected thanks to 30 years of experience in exporting grains and other agricultural raw materials.
The results achieved are proof of this. The quantities of lemons exported in previous seasons were as follows:
- 2017: 4,400 tn.
- 2018: 1,662 tn.
- 2019: 1,800 tn.
- 2020: 3,200 tn.
The destinations of these operations were Russia, Spain, Canada, the Netherlands, Italy and Turkey.
The concression of this operation to Russia is extremely auspicious for the 2021 season in which we foresee a production of 9,500 tons.
