South Africa’s 2021 citrus exports are expected to set another record, driven largely by late  mandarins. The Citrus Growers Association of Southern Africa (CGA) estimates 158.7 million cartons will be shipped in 2021, compared to 146 million in 2020  and  130 million in 2019,  meaning a 22% export growth in just  two years.

On the back of the pandemic, Peru exported 37% more citrus in 2020  than in 2019, with shipments reaching 244,000 tons, worth US$262 million, according to data released by the country’s Foreign Trade Research and Development Institute (Idexcam). 

In a statement, Idexcam said: “There is a growing demand for citrus, especially mandarins, due to their antioxidant properties and high content of vitamin C which strengthens the  immune system, creating a rebound of global  commercialisation.”

The Valencian Association of Farmers (AVA-ASAJA) reports that the second half of the citrus season has seen an increase in sales and prices for producers. This is due to a better balance between supply, which has been lower than expected due to adverse weather conditions, and demand, which is up due to the cold in Europe and the fruit’s immunological benefits.
