Egyptian oranges replacing Spanish ones in UAE markets, season remains slow overall

Egyptian Navel and Valencia oranges were a “great alternative source” of oranges for UAE buyers, Samel Saadedin from the Al Jabali Trading Group told Fresh Plaza. The Egyptian oranges replaced Spanish imports that were “sour.” The agrifood portal notes that “though the prices from Egypt tend to be low, the market didn’t turn out to be that favorable for importers. Apart from supplying to wholesalers in the UAE, a large part of the revenue of Al Jabali is generated by re-exporting imported produce.” Saadedin added that the market for citrus has been “slow” since January.
