Japan: Citrus Annual

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   JA2022-0117

Mandarin (Citrus unshiu) production in Japan continues to gradually decrease along with a falling number of farmers. Overall Japanese citrus consumption fell as the price of imported citrus, including oranges, grapefruit and lemons, increased due to a combination of shipping challenges, inflation, and Japanese yen depreciation. Some Japanese importers have begun to seek cheaper alternatives of imported citrus.
