Brazilian orange juice exports (FCOJ Equivalent to 66º Brix) registered a total volume of 1.07 million tonnes during the 2019/2020 harvest –  an increase of 17% compared to the previous harvest, when 920,029 tons were shipped.  Sales reached US$1.751 billion, up 3% compared to the US$1.707 billion generated in the previous harvest. This information is according to data from the Foreign Trade Secretariat (Secex) compiled by CitrusBR.

According to the executive director of CitrusBR, Ibiapaba Netto, although it is a positive fact, the increase occurs over a small base. “When we look at the historical basis, we are back to the level recorded in the 2015/2016 harvest”. The advance, according to him, is also explained by the greater amount of juice on the market. The sector processed more than 325 million boxes, totaling 1.2 million tons of juice in the 2019/20 harvest, about 37% more than in the previous period.
