  • The 2018-19 California citrus crop looks like it will be larger than last year, but there will likely be some issues with sizing, according to an industry body.

  • According to the report World – Oranges – Market Analysis, Forecast, Size, Trends and Insights, recently published by IndexBox, global orange consumption reached 75 million tons in 2017, going up by 2% against the previous year (2016).

  •  
    The Northern Hemisphere is taking over the orange season from the Southern Hemisphere. While the last oranges from South Africa are sold in Europe, the supply from the Mediterranean countries is getting under way.

  • According to data revealed by Brussels, the crisis that the Spanish citrus sector is going through is not at all being caused by the import of South African fruit, but has more to do with the serious internal problems that the sector is suffering. The opinion of the growers, which the parties have happily assumed, about the overflow of the market, the viability of the safeguard clause or the lack of aid, clashes head-on with the data handled by the European Union.

  • High volumes of imported oranges in the U.S. market over recent months have been reflected in market prices.

    Chile, which has shipped 96% of its oranges to the North American country, saw a 13% rise in volumes this year through August to a record 74,182 metric tons (MT). This marks a significant rise from the 2015 season when just 48,470MT were exported.

  • Fantastic rain has fallen in the Eastern Cape’s Sundays River Valley, the best they’ve had since 2011, says Hannes de Waal, managing director of the Sundays River Valley Citrus Company.

  • The global orange market is facing a number of challenges. South African oranges, and citrus fruits in general, are troubled by problems in the ports of Durban and Port Elizabeth.
