Chilean lemon exports start on time

Lemon shipments from Chile began at week 19, the same week as the previous season, as reported by the Citrus Committee of Chile ASOEX BB #:156234.

In week 20, 98 tons of this fruit were shipped, with an accumulated volume of 193 tons, a figure that reflects a decrease of 93% compared to the same date in 2021. 64% of this volume has been destined for the U.S. and the rest for Japan.

Earlier this spring, president of the Citrus Committee, Juan Enrique Ortúzar, projected that Chile would export a volume of 90,000 tons, which is equivalent to 11 percent less than the previous season.
