26 Import Documents Required
Phytosanitary Certificate Certificate of Origin Invoice Packing List Bill of Lading Non-wood packing materials certificate or Fumigation Certificate if wooden Pallet used

27 Quarantine Requirement
The only stricter quarantine requirement to Chilean fruit: Pallet must bear the pallet number and the pallet number must show on the phytosanitary certificate for air shipments. Cold Treatment: only to fruits from V & RM, conditions normally 0.5 degree Celsius for 15 days. Ocean - Air: this is forbidden to all origin, but other origin does not use this transportation, while Chile does. On the site inspection, the same to all origins.

28 Projection for Future Increased consumption for both domestic and imported fruits, per capital fruit consumption is expected to increase from 40 kilos to 48 kilos in 2020. More direct import to mainland China. Volume will continue to increase, but the growth rate will slow down. High value products will have good future, like blueberries.
