U.S. Highbush Blueberries Gain Expanded Access to High-Demand Markets in China, the Philippines

The North American Blueberry Council (NABC) today expressed appreciation for progress made in ongoing U.S. trade negotiations with China in phase 1 of the trade agreement disclosed earlier this year. Among the new tenets of the agreement is expanded market access for fresh U.S. highbush blueberries. Previously, China only permitted imports of dried and frozen U.S. highbush blueberries. Additionally, the Philippines will formally open its market.
