Brazilian exports of Frozen Concentrated Orange Juice (FCOJ) totaled 813.7 thousand tonnes. They generated US$ 1.3 billion in the first ten months of the 2021/22 harvest, according to data from the Foreign Trade Secretariat (Secex) complied by CitrusBR. This entity represents Brazil’s three largest exporters (Citrosuco, Cutrale, and Louis Dreyfus Company). Compared to the same period last harvest cycle, the exported volume dropped 5.2%, while revenue increased by 5%, thanks to higher prices.

Given the adverse effects of the weather (drought and frost) on fruit production in the agricultural belt formed by São Paulo and Minas Gerais last year, producers had expected a drop in total volume.

See below the track record of Brazilian natural juice exports (including orange juice exports) in the period between January 2021 and March 2022 via Port of Santos, from where Cutrale ships most of its products abroad. The data is from DataLiner.
