China: Citrus Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CH2021-0167

Fresh citrus production is expected to increase in MY2021/2022 across all categories: oranges, tangerines and mandarins, and grapefruit. Tangerine and mandarin production is forecast to reach 28 million metric tons (MMT) in MY2021/2022 driven by consumer demand for easy to peel varieties. Grapefruit production growth is fueled by consumer demand for softer and juicer grapefruit varieties; imports reached a record high of 125,000 metric tons (MT) in MY2020/2021 and are expected to increase in MY2021/2022. Health-conscious consumers are purchasing more 100 percent juice and not-from-concentrate orange juice. Adoption of e-commerce and expanded delivery service has made customers more willing to purchase larger boxes of fresh fruit and increased consumption.
