China opens doors to hungarian cherries amid soaring import demand

Hungarian cherries are anticipated to gain market presence in China.

Following the announcement by China’s General Administration of Customs (GAC), Hungary has been granted permission to export fresh cherries to China, contingent on meeting specific requirements. This development emerged from a state visit by Chinese leadership to Hungary, resulting in the elevation of bilateral ties and the signing of various cooperation agreements across sectors like the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), finance, green development, agriculture, tourism, and culture.

With China experiencing a significant surge in fresh cherry imports, Hungarian cherries are anticipated to gain market presence in China. In 2022, China’s cherry imports amounted to 348,100 tons, reflecting a substantial increase and underscoring China’s position as the largest cherry market globally, consuming approximately 22.7% of the world’s cherry production. Hungary joins a list of around 11 countries and regions, including Chile, the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Argentina, that have been approved for cherry export to China.
