Brazilian papayas: Harsh winter and smaller crop area limit exports

According to governmental data, the volume of papayas exported by Brazil has dropped since June. In August, for example, the volume shipped reached 3,000 tons, down 3% from July and 21% lower YoY.

Sources familiar with the market reported that the declining trend comes from the lower national output due to the colder-than-usual winter, which slows down maturation, and the previous reductions in crop areas due to phytosanitary problems and high production costs.

In August, the main export destinations were: Portugal, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands, which bought around 2 thousand tons in August, representing 67% of the total exported by Brazil. For the coming months, Brazilian papaya exports are expected to remain timid, as there is no forecast of a considerable increase in supply.
