US admits imports of avocados from Colombia

Friday, October 28, 2016


California’s Hass avocado growers would face new competition, but U.S. consumers could see some slightly lower prices, under a new Agriculture Department proposal to admit imports from Colombia.

In its latest market-opening move, the Agriculture Department on Thursday published for public comment the proposal that Colombia’s Hass avocados be admitted into the United States so long as a number of phytosanitary requirements are met.
