Chinese tangerine exports need more coordination
"The main growing locations of Chinese tangerines are far apart and because of the different latitudes in all of these places, not all tangerines enter the market at exactly the same time. Every year, the tangerines from the provinces of Yunnan and Guangxi ripen the earliest, followed closely by fruit from the provinces of Hunan and Hubei," explains Kevin, from Greenstream Fruits and Vegetables Co Ltd in Jining (Shandong province).

"In terms of market supply, the first batch of tangerines of this season arrived on the domestic market at the beginning of September, after an acceleration of the ripening process. After the peel has naturally turned yellow and thus met the requirements for export, the export season will probably open halfway through October. Currently, Chinese tangerine exports mainly go to South East Asia, Malaysia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and some other countries."
Staff members picking out tangerines
"Benefiting from a good level of sweetness and a very good taste, our products generally have been selling well for the past couple of years. Especially since 2014, the exports of leafed tangerines, which go through trading posts to Russia, have been increasing substantially. Every year between September and January, 50,000 to 60,000 tons are exported to Russia."

"On the other hand, however, there are still challenges within the industry. The Chinese tangerine exporting industry is significantly lacking an advanced industrial control system, so we have problems in coordinating the amount of dispatches. In this regard, we should learn from the experience of overseas countries, for example Turkey, which exports more tangerines because industry associations actively try to coordinate the dispatches of each company, so they can effectively prevent irregular competition within the industry."
