In the MY 2022/23, Egypt achieved a remarkable milestone by exporting a record volume of oranges to Spain, multiplying its exports manifold, as reported by EastFruit. This feat allowed Egypt to ascend to the premier position among orange suppliers to Spain for the first time.
In the first 11 months of the MY 2022/23, from November 2022 to September 2023, Egyptian exporters delivered impressive 97,500 tons of oranges to the Spanish market, a stark contrast to the modest 25 tons supplied in the previous MY 2021/22. This represents a staggering 3904-fold increase in just one year!
The influx of Egyptian oranges into Spain commenced in January, with a significant surge in volumes starting in March and peaking in May. Shipments dwindled by August, indicating that the season’s final figures are unlikely to deviate substantially post-October data.
