U.S. to Import Tomatoes From Central America

September 15, 2006

The United States recently received a green light to begin importing tomatoes from Central America, according to a statement from the U.S. Embassy in San José.

The U.S. Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) approved tomatoes imported from Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama as long as they comply with certain requirements, the statement said.

They must be grown and packaged in areas free of insects listed in the decree, and each shipment must contain a certificate of approval from the producing country’s agriculture ministry.
