The citrus market is calm. According to Peter Maes of Zeghers in Belgium, it's quite stable. "Everything's running smoothly with few real peaks or troughs. The citrus market is, however, gradually coming under some pressure. Spain is on the market. But Egypt and Morocco are also in production."
"Increasing volumes are causing the pressure to build. The Spanish vegetable season has been somewhat extreme in recent weeks. But, the market has currently normalized a little. And the major problems seem to be over. Spanish vegetables aren't our main product. The situation, therefore, hasn't affected us much."
“We're big in lemons. This market, too, is fairly normal at present. Demand is good, and supplies continue. And prices are normal for the time of year. So, there are few real peculiarities. We're currently getting lemons from Spain. That season will run until May or June. After that, we'll switch to overseas lemons," concludes Peter.
