Exporting Cherries

2020 Export Programs – China, Japan, Thailand, and European Union

The 2020 information packages for the program to export BC Cherries to the People’s Republic of China, Japan, and Thailand are now ready, and were emailed out to last year’s participants by the CFIA. If you did not receive this email, please see the post on the News page for access to all required documents HERE.

As in 2018 and 2019, this year’s application must be submitted directly to the CFIA, with a duplicate copy of the application and payment information forwarded to the BC Cherry Association. The deadline for the application and full payment to be received is Friday March 27, 2020. BC Tree Fruits Growers’ application deadline is two days earlier on Wednesday March 25, 2020, and payment will be made through your grower account.

Any grower interested in taking part in this program must attend the one of the mandatory training sessions in mid April. Dates, times and locations will be provided to growers signed up for this program. Due to social distancing requirements, we will be conducting the meetings by Zoom this year, which is accessed by following the link sent to participants.
