Greece: Orange, mandarin and kiwi exports at slower pace

Exports of Greek oranges, mandarins and kiwis have been going at a slower pace due to the sale of the available stocks motivated by the Christmas festivities. Exports of apples and cucumbers, as well as strawberries and tomatoes, are still underway. The prices ​​are satisfactory and prospects are positive, with demand expected to grow next week. However, controls need to be stepped up in order to curb the frequent shipment of substandard products that can damage the reputation of Greek exporters.
