Production of Citrus fruit is expanding in Turkey
As the end of December is getting close, so is the start of the Clementine mandarin season in Turkey. For the next couple of months the citrus, which is growing in popularity every year, will be the focus of the Turkish fruit exporters. A shortage in mandarins in Morocco, Egypt and Spain will lead to a promising season for Turkey. Every year the Clementine variety grows in popularity and thus more and more growers have been expanding their orchards over the past three years. Last year the total mandarin production in Turkey came down to about 1,650,000 tons. When only taking the Clementine variety into account, total production was about 350,000 to 400,000 tons, which is 5% more than the year before.
The Turkish clementines are being sent to different markets. Russia, Ukraine and Iraq are very common markets for Turkish mandarins. However, the Balkan and European countries have become very important markets for the citrus fruit over the past few years. Therefore the growers have been focusing their marketing in the West and Central European markets. This means that we will see more and more Turkish citrus fruit in our stores.
News letter November
New harvest strawberries Morocco and Egypt
In less than a month, Egypt and Morocco will start the harvest of strawberries. It looks like this season will be similar to last year’s season. The weather was very good and the quality of the strawberries high. The advantage is that Egypt and Morocco can answer the needs in Western Europe, between the harvest seasons in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and Spain. In this period the demand is still high, which leads to a major competition between Morocco and Egypt.
Next to this, we also see the rising popularity of the Greek strawberries. Thanks to their great taste and quality, the Greek strawberries are becoming more and more popular amongst the wholesalers. In addition, the majority of the strawberries, consist of the medium sized to large strawberries, which gives them an advantage. If there should become a shortage in the other markets, the Greek strawberries, will definitely become a great alternative.
