Australia: Producción de jugo de naranjas disminuirá 14% en año comercial 2017/18
Orange juice production is expected to fall to 7,000 MT in 2017/18. The new Post estimate for 2016/17 is 14 percent below the official forecast due to a shortage of Valencia oranges, which are normally used for juicing, as well as lower domestic demand for reconstituted orange juice. Growers are moving away from planting juicing varieties such as Valencia oranges towards eating varieties like Navel oranges. According to a trade source, export demand for Navels has been increasing and the financial returns to growers are significantly higher. Post forecasts imports of orange juice concentrate, mainly from Brazil, to remain at 31,500 MT in 2017/18, the same as last year.
