Brazil: Orange growers struggling to find buyers

The orange crop is now at its final stretch in São Paulo, Brazil. The lack of buyers for the fruit continues to be one of the biggest problems. The situation isn't any worse because government auctions have helped ensure producer's income.

According to CONAB, when producers sell a box, they receive R$7 from the industry and a grant of R$3.1 by the federal government.

Marco Antonio dos Santos, president of the Rural Association of Taquaritinga, reports that "from November we will commercialize the later fruit. With a significant volume, our concern is that it won't probably be absorbed by the entire industry. The domestic market is also expected to absorb, and adapt these situations through auctions conducted by the CONAB."

This year's orange crop in Sao Paulo will have a 5% drop, but there is still fruit in the market.
