Costa Rica pins hopes on China's pineapple intake

Wednesday, November 22, 2017

Costa Rican pineapple suppliers could face major oversupply if the anticipated major demand from China is less than expected.

The Chinese market opened for Costa Rican pineapples earlier this year and there are already significant volumes being sent to Asia, said Jai Thakrar, president of exporter Jalaram Fruit, with new plantings in the ground to prepare for further growth.
