India opens its market to Greek apples

Greek apples got the final approval for export to the Indian market by the Indian Ministry of Agriculture, the Greek Agriculture Ministry said on Monday.
This opens the way for Greek producers to contact local plant health control services for details on export requirements.
The request to the Indian government for exports of Greek apples to India began in 2016, when the Greek agriculture ministry first submitted its application.
Negotiations on technical details followed after Indian authorities completed the evaluation of the Greek dossier in 2017, concluding in 2018 with a specific agreement that saw a test consignment sent to India.
Greece is the first country in the European Union to complete the test shipment successfully, thus granting it access to the Indian market.
