European Union: Citrus Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   E42021-0083

In MY 2021/22, EU citrus production is projected to drop 6.8 percent compared to the previous season to 10.7 MMT due to unfavorable weather conditions in the top EU citrus-producing countries. Expected reductions in domestic supplies, higher demand for citrus derived from the COVID-19 pandemic, and the reopening of the hospitality sector may encourage EU citrus imports. Spain is the major citrus supplier to the EU market. United Kingdom, Switzerland, Norway, Canada, and Serbia, followed by Brazil and the Middle East continue to be relevant EU citrus export markets. In MY 2021/22, additional issues concerning the rise of citrus production costs due to strong price increases for agricultural inputs, electricity, logistics, and petrol may create economic disruption for EU citrus growers.
