Mexican limes are consumed on 3 continents

It is Mexico's most representative and most produced product. Companies like Rancho Chacxul have been marketing this fruit, which is consumed in Europe as well as in the rest of America and is now being sent to Japan, for years. "We are a family business that started from scratch. We started by having a packer and nowadays we have three," said Ramon Bartolome, manager at Rancho Chacxul. 

Currently, this Mexican company, with headquarters in Miami, is a member of a farmers' association, working as a team to offer a greater quantity of product to its international customers at more competitive prices. 

"We try to have limes throughout the year. However, depending on the productions of other countries, our destinations rotate throughout the year," Bartolome said. As a result, Mexico is currently beginning its lime production peak season, sending it to Europe and Asia. However, when Brazil's lime production starts in December, Mexico moves to the American continent, as "the product is better paid and there is demand", the people from Rancho Chacxul stated, adding that a box can cost 40 dollars. 

At the moment, the Mexican limes cost approximately 1.53 euro per kilo in the export market. Mexico's lime production at this time of the year arrives earlier than the production of other countries, due to the climatic conditions. 

"This always gives us an advantage to achieve better prices as there is no production in the market," Bartolome added. "We are calm about prices, as they have been more or less stable. What we should pay attention to is the climate, which is something we can't fight. That's why we had the idea of having three packers in different places, to make sure we have production all year in case one of the areas is affected by something," they said.
