Argentina has reached an agreement to sell wheat to Mexico for the first time, said Ricardo Buryaile, Minister of Agriculture in Argentina. The shipment will be for approximately 30,000 tonnes of wheat, delivered in the first half of December.
“Our wheat was hit hardest by past government policies,” Buryaile said. “Together with President Macri we are reversing the situation, and winning markets like Mexico is the best signal that can be given this way.”
Argentina primarily has exported wheat to Brazil, but the opening of the Mexican market comes on the heels of talks between the public and private sectors of both countries in which agreements were reached on the phytosanitary conditions required to facilitate trading.
