Market Intelligence Feb 2017

In this issue we bring you a comprehensive view of what is happening in the world’s markets. With unprecedented volatility in citrus, previously unseen weather and changeable crop volumes, never has there been a more important time to understand the current situation and future forecasts.

Features include:

  • Orange - The market was thought to have peaked towards the end of December 2016, but according to recent worldwide offers this doesn’t appear to be the case.
  • Lemon - We have seen stable lemon prices for months now. This is unusual in itself as this isn't something we see all too often.
  • Grapefruit - Production in Florida is almost unrecognisable compared to just two to three years ago.

Market Intelligence June 2016

In this issue we will be introducing you to our VP of Global citrus procurement and her views on this volatile market. In addition to the usual market news featured, you will also find an overview of our HIC range and an update from Earthoil. Happy reading.

Features include:

  • Orange Oil - Inventories of orange oil and d-limonene are quite low at origin, and market talk is extraordinarily high at the moment.
  • Expressed lime Prices for expressed lime continue on a steady downward trend, despite both Brazil and Mexico reporting crops that are slightly lower in 2016.
  • Grapefruit - Total Florida production was down again in 2016, from 12.9 million boxes in 2015 to an estimated 10.85 million boxes

Market Intelligence February 2016

Market Intelligence Feb 2016

The volatility that marred the second half of 2015 has continued unabated into the New Year. We will likely be talking of another year with very few markets moving in line with conventional expectation as the dynamics behind this unpredictability are driven by such a diverse range of factors.

Features include:

  • Orange Oil - The orange oil market remains very firm as we await offers for new crop Florida Valencia Oil, expected to be at an all-time high.
  • Lemon -The 2016 Argentinian crop, which will start next month, is forecast to be circa 15% higher than the 2015 crop.
  • Organic bergamot - Following the conventional market the situation for organic oil this season is very bleak with production of organic oil less than 20%.

Features include:

  • Lemon Oil - is currently trading close to all-time high price levels and prices for oil are rapidly increasing...
