New EU measures requiring 'cold processing' for oranges imported from South Africa threaten hundreds of containers of oranges already being shipped from South Africa and on their way to the EU
Justin Chadwick, the CEO of the CGA (Citrus Growers Association), expressed in his weekly newsletter his concern about hundreds of containers of oranges already shipped whose customs clearance at destination may be uncertain. The new European measures are published and the 'cold treatment' requirement comes into force.

Emphasizing that these measures are implemented without considering the technical justification, because it is not a risk that requires emergency measures, but only by political protectionism
