Egypt’s fresh orange exports spurred by a pandemic-induced global demand

Since the late 1980s, key Egyptian agricultural producers have increasingly channeled their resources into improving orange production. At the same time, they have been pushing for opening of new markets such as Brazil and Japan – added as export destinations in recent months. Of course, exports are further spurred by a pandemic-induced global demand for the Vitamin C-rich fruit.

Oranges account for approximately 80% of Egypt’s total cultivated citrus area today, and, according to official data, made up over 86% of exported citrus fruit in the 2020/2021 season.
