Excerpt from FRESH PLAZA article:

South African oranges arrived on a full market in China this year, causing pressure on prices. The Egyptian season lasted longer than in previous years, Spanish volumes were high and Australian supply had an overlap with the South African season. Yet Menno van Breemen of Aartsen continues to be positive about the current season: “We’ve seen prices rising in recent weeks, which is positive, although the South African growers expect production will start declining soon, resulting in a shorter season. Looking at just ourselves, we’re growing considerably in volume for oranges in China. This is due to increasing demand in second and third tier cities, where we’re selling more and more, and due to the fact that we continue to expand our strong position on traditional markets.”
