What are the European buyer requirements for fresh pineapples from West Africa?
Buyer requirements are all the requirements you can expect from your EU buyer. They can be divided into two groups: legislative and non-legislative requirements that are related to food safety, environment and to social issues. GlobalGAP, MRL norms and increasingly social requirements are the first standards that should be met when starting a relation with volume retailers (super or hypermarkets), especially in Western and Northern EU countries. In addition, quality requirements must be met during the first export trials, otherwise the business relation can end abruptly.
