South African citrus season on a high with Europe

Randolf Aaldijk of Origin Fruit Direct explains that sales of South Africna citrus are high and export is being well regulated. Aaldijk highlighted that while "the Black Spot measures continue to hover over the market like the sword of Damocles (…) it's admirable how much time, money and effort the South African growers are investing to control Black Spot, because it's not easy for them with all those conditions." He adds, "the earnings are a lot lower an the exchange rate of Euro-Rand is still reasonably favourable." While South Africa is exporting to new market destinations, the EU nevertheless remains an important market and reliable trade partner.
