Early blueberry exports from Argentina are expected to come in about 1% lower due to frosts in July and August, but the cold won't affect the quality of the fruit, according to the Argentinean Blueberry Committee. Last year, the country's growers exported 63% of their berries to the U.S. and 30% to Europe. "Despite the decrease because of climatic effects, there is optimism with respect to the season that is starting, which will be in the order of volumes from the past season," said Ines Peláez, ABC general manager.
