China: Citrus production down 20%

"It's been a disappointing year for orange production, down 20% on last year. Prices are fair - up 10%." says Mr. Zhuo, CEO of Zhejiang Tianzi Stock. 

Higher costs means higher prices
"There are several reasons for the upward trend in orange prices but two stand out. First of all, the average orange price was fairly good last year. This year the production volume decreased and gave a reinforcing stimulus to the upward trend. Secondly, the labour costs and the production costs have increased. To a certain degree, that also pushes the orange price upward."

"We have a production base of about 6667 hectares. Apart from that, we also have orange cultivation bases in places like Zhejiang with a system of overlap. The oranges we produce are sold under our own brand' Tianzi'. 50% of those oranges are sold everywhere in China, the other 50% goes to Canada, Southeast Asia, Europe and other countries and regions."

"We are a leading agricultural production enterprise in China that unifies the development of production bases, the marketing procedures of fresh fruits, further processing of food products, cold storage logistics and preservation. We have selection and packaging lines for fresh fruit, a factory room for further processing and a packaging room. Next to the production of honey oranges, grapefruit, navel orange, ponkan tangerine and other Tianzi brand fruits, the company also produces orange juice and other processed products based on oranges."
