France: U.S. Cherries Exports to France hit by French Pesticide Ban

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

With the implementation of a ban on cherries imports from countries where the use of the chemical Dimethoate is legal, U.S. cherry exports to France will be prohibited in 2016. It may also create competitor opportunities in other EU markets, as the French cherry crop is likely to be lower and more expensive. The EU has not officially reacted to the French decision, but fruit importers and traders fear that France may soon implement similar domestic bans against other EU-approved pesticides or chemicals, de-facto shutting down the free movement of EU and third-country fruits and vegetables into France.
