dc.descriptionACP exports of fresh produce and fish face increasingly stringent checks in importing countries. In March alone risks highlighted included fruit imports to the EU from the southern hemisphere infected with fruit-fly larvae; fish from Kenva and Uganda exported to the EU which was found to contain salmonella; and fruit on sale in the UK which showed unacceptable levels of organophosphate pesticide residues. The EU is considering restrictions on citrus from southern hemisphere exporters until countries can be shown to be free of fruit fly in order to protect EU citrus growing regions. A compromise may be agreed allowing imports of citrus fruit which has been subject to approved chilling and vapour treatments. All countries are advised to ensure correct usage of pesticides on fresh produce and to observe the recommended interval between last application and harvest and greater care is required in the handling of fish destined for export.
