Summer Citrus From South Africa adheres to market demand


Crop Update

By the end of week 32, we had completed nearly 70% of our planned shipments for the season, representing 10 conventional vessels and containers on deck in Philadelphia as well as approximately 17,000 pallets shipped in containers in New York and Savannah, GA.

Easy Peelers NOW make up almost 50% of our fruit basket, followed by 44% Navels and the remaining 6% are Star Ruby and Cara-Cara.

We will continue with weekly conventional arrivals until the 2nd or 3rd week of October with additional containers in between.

Market Update

We now move on to the latest varieties of mandarin oranges and look forward to sharing the Easy Peeler market outlook for fruit and the impact of SCSA.

Please hear from our service providers explaining how we manage our supply chain as well as the growth of the Easy Peeler category, and our grower representative who was able to join us in the US for the first time since the pandemic!

Did you notice how Leo Holt described the value of our summer program?

  1. The people of Citrusdal have remained faithful to controlling their supply chain to meet the demands of the American market
  2. Have access to partners who will bring your products to the markets you need to enter in a timely manner
  3. Ensure freshness and market availability through excellence in growing, cooling and shipping

Production update

We had our challenges on the supply chain side with unforeseen delays with some ships, but overall we were able to stick to our original shipping plan.

Our success is based on our ability to:

  1. Plan and over-prepare
  2. Share real-time and advanced communication with commerce
  3. Deliver healthy quality and quantity of fruit

These three elements of our program allow us to truly say that we are”Selling the World’s Best Summer Citrus.”

We would not have been able to complete this season without the support of our loyal service providers around the world, with a focus on the Summer Citrus program in the United States. Thank you for your support!
