Become a WCO member
WCO is the only global organisation solely focused on citrus fruit. It draws inspiration from the success of other platforms focused on individual fruit categories, such as pears and apples, kiwis, avocado and red fruits, which already have their own global platforms.
The core aim of the WCO is to facilitate exchange between member countries to better face common challenges and seize opportunities for the collective benefit of the citrus sector in a spirit of cooperation and transparency.
At annual and interim meetings WCO members have the opportunity to exchange on topical focus areas for the sector, such as crop statistics and production information as well as to discuss key market factors impacting the fresh and processed citrus markets.
If you are interested in becoming a WCO member, please contact the WCO Secretariat.
