Situation in the lime market currently starting to improve

According to Andreas Schindler, owner of Don Limon, the situation in the lime market has been bad since the end of August, although it is currently starting to improve. The company, specialised in supply chain management, has a close relationship with producers in Mexico, Columbia and Brazil is involved in the entire process, from growing to packaging and logistics.

In the U.S. market, Don Limon focuses mostly on limes and mangoes, although it supplies numerous commodities, namely citrus fruits avocados, grapes, melons, watermelons or apples.

“We supply not only Europe, but also Asia and North America. We have good sales in Canada and the North East of the U.S.; we have offices in China and are preparing to open also in Dubai. For our production we need to develop markets for all sizes and qualities of the products. For this we are going global. For example in the case of the shutdown of the Russian Border for EU products we are able to supply solutions to sell German Apples now in Central America,” affirms Andreas.

He assures that China is currently a booming market, although it is also a difficult one, as it has “special quality demands and very different business culture. Up to this China doesn’t buy limes from us, as they have Vietnam and Thailand for those. It is a market that looks just for specific items.”

Initially, Don Limon always works with the brands of the producers, but in the long term it strives to establish a relationship of trust with them and market their products under the Don Limon label. Diego Morales, manager of Don Limón Americas – based in Guatemala, explains, “we create partnerships with people that want to have good quality branded product, especially wholesalers who have loyal supplier strategies are our partners.”

In terms of future plans, Andreas believes that the east coast of the U.S. is a market with great potential, and he also notes the opening of a new office in Peru. “Don Limon’s business will become bigger, more stable and more sophisticated and the knowledge we develop on one region we can bring to the other,” says Andreas. “We are experts on creating trust, which is what I believe makes us successful. Our team of international experts with native speaker from all the regions we are working in makes sure we are permanently learning and understanding."
