Egyptian lemons gain ground in months with no Spanish production
The product's better quality, mostly thanks to the improved knowledge of the producers, as well as the improvement of their image, has allowed Egyptian lemons to enter markets like Spain at times when there is not enough production to meet the needs of the consumers. To this we must add that "this costs less than importing them from other countries that are further away," explains Julio Alfaro, of Global Expansion Fruit. Thus, the quality-price formula of Egyptian lemons is the winner in a totally globalised market.
For now, Global Expansion Fruit only sells lemon of Egyptian origin during the months of July and August, and its prospect for 2017 is to have worked with about 3,500 tonnes by the end of summer. Of this volume, only 10% remains in Spain, with the rest being redistributed to countries such as Germany, the UK, Poland, Romania, Italy, and Belarus, among others.
The final price of one kilo of lemons ranges from 1.10 €/kg to 1.20 €/kg, depending on the destination. This means that this year the price has increased slightly, by between 0.05 and 0.07 €/kg compared to 2016.
