The Federal Government has struck a deal to allow fresh cherries from Australia’s mainland to be airfreighted to China. The move, announced as part of market access reforms that will also see Australian peaches, plums and apricots gain access to the lucrative Chinese market, is considered a major win for the industry. Changes to fumigation requirements mean cherries from mainland Australia can potentially be on Chinese supermarket shelves within 48 to 72 hours of harvest. While Australian cherries have had access to China since 2013, only Tasmanian cherries could be airfreighted, due to fruit fly concerns.
