Gil Ben-Moshe from Hefer Valley:
"Israel: "Smaller volumes of big Orri this year"
“Our Orri is sent to markets all over Europe, as well as to North America. Because we sell the fruit at the same FOB prices, we do not have any preference for market destinations,” Ben-Moshe continues. Nowadays Spain is also cultivating Orri. “However, quality-wise, there is no competition. Spain is actually a major importer of Israeli Orri. Spanish consumers really appreciate the sweetness of our fruit. But it is also visible on other markets, Israeli Orri is much more expensive than the Spanish Orri.”
The weaker euro also has its effect on the fruit. “The euro is currently putting pressure on prices when exporting to the EU, because the currency is very weak at the moment. This results in European customers having to pay higher prices for imported fruit. This will have a somewhat negative effect on consumption, but we believe the balance point between price and consumption will be found eventually. However, the Orri is not an exotic fruit, it is a much more basic product. It therefore suffers less in times like these compared with true exotics,” Ben-Moshe concludes.
