Fruit to the Phillipines made easier

The Central West’s fruit market is set to receive a boost as the Australian government signs an agreement with the Phillipines to enable the export of fruit to the country.

The deal will make it easier for Australian horticulturists to sell apples, pears, citrus fruits and cherries to Phillipino consumers.

Chairman of the NSW Farmers Horticultural Committee, Peter Darley, says although the technology used to pick and store fruits allows for a viable export, there will be some quality issues with exporting stone fruits.

He says the fall in value of the Australian dollar has helped the industry to grow as well.
