"There is much to celebrate," said Bernabé Padilla, fresh fruit commercial manager. "I think that achieving 35% more exports, taking up the challenge of opening a new market like China, and doubling our volume to the US in such a particular context are events worth highlighting." Citromax Group has become the first Argentine citrus grower to complete exports of fresh lemons to China, where it expects to send 120 tons this season, and twice this volume next year.

Citromax Group completes first exports of Argentine fresh lemons to China
Citromax recovers its top 5 position as a fresh lemon exporter
Although they are not going to reach their usual volumes, this year Citromax is to export 25-30% more than the previous season, reaching 15,000 tons of fresh lemons and thereby positioning itself again among the top five Argentinean exporters. With a plan to renew plantations under way, they are expecting significant growth within three years to consolidate this position. With 80% still destined for industrial use coupled with investments in this sector, they have increased their possibilities of even doubling production.
