Tropical exotic fruit growers are looking to exit the ind바카라ustry, at least temporarily, as the number of countries that allow exotic fruit production in certain areas is dwindling.
In the U.S. last year, more than 2.4 million tonnes o더킹카지노f pectin, or papayas, was exported, and this fell to less than 1 million tonnes in 2012, according to information compiled by the Piedmont Institute for the Study of Agriculture and Conservation.
At the same time, tropical fruit growers have faced tough competition from China and other emerging markets due to their size and potential for economic growth.
The study estimates only 40 per cent of countries that allow export of pectin importations, or that allow it under certain conditions, can handle the huge influx. The rest require significant investment.
The report does indicate that this “importation crisis” has slowed exports to China. However, the study indicates that the demand from growing customers such as Singapore and Australia remains strong.
In a statement, the Piedmont Institute for the Study of Agriculture and Conservation said that while it hopes to see the trade situation ease, “these trends will ultimately depend우리카지노 on market conditions.
“It will be difficult if not impossible for the importation surge to be fully stopped by 2015, particularly if China and other countries continue to expand.”
According to Piedmont’s estimates, one-third of the world’s pectin comes from three countries: Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines. It is important to note the report’s methodology has not been finalized.
It also notes that pectin could become an important new growth technology that could be made into “a highly sustainable agricultural crop”.
As for a possible ban on Asian countries that export pectin, the Piedmont Institute for the Study of Agriculture and Conservation has expressed its doubts, saying “We do not believe the government of China would put pressure on countries to import it.”
The report is expected to be released soon.
