Fewer boxes of South African oranges exported to EU

South Africa will be exporting 2 million fewer boxes of oranges to the European Union (EU) this season. The decrease in exports is due to a fungal issue called the Citrus Black Spot, which makes the product less appealing to the consumer. This season, the north and west of the country will export their pest-free citrus to the EU, while the rest of the citrus will be exported to Asia, the MIddle East, and Eastern Europe. The pest-free fruit destined for those latter locations will be re-routed to markets in the EU to fill the supply gap.
