Recently, the General Administration of Customs issued No. 30 "Announcement on the Inspection and Quarantine Requirements for Imported Frozen Fruits from the Philippines", which stated that Philippine frozen bananas, frozen pineapples, and frozen mangoes that meet the "Inspection and Quarantine Requirements for Imported Frozen Fruits from the Philippines" are allowed to be imported. This means that the Philippines has obtained the qualification to export frozen fruit to China for the first time.
Currently, the Philippines can export four kinds of fresh fruits to China: pineapple, banana, mango, and papaya. The three frozen fruits approved for export to China this time are also among the fresh fruits allowed to enter the country, and they come from the same origin as the fresh fruits in accordance with the protocol.
The Philippines is the second country after Ecuador to export frozen bananas to China. For the first time, pineapple and mango have been included in the list of frozen fruits that can be exported to China.
Frozen durians are mainly sourced from Malaysia and Thailand. Frozen durians have a higher maturity, and with fresh durians gaining popularity in China, frozen durians are also gaining popularity in the food and beverage confectionary segment.
