Cold weather across Europe raises demand for citrus

The Spanish citrus campaign has got off to a difficult start, with large availability of Southern Hemisphere clementines and heavy rainfall. However, the arrival of the cold weather across much of Europe is triggering a recovery in demand, which producers hope will endure. Demand for Spanish lemons is expected to take off around Christmas, starting with the Primofiori campaign, where there is currently a predominance of small calibres. Spain also faces stiff competition from Turkey, although Turkish exporters have also faced a tough start to the season.
