Despite the drop in volume, a positive campaign is expected for mandarins, since July and August are still to come, and that is where the peak of the season is recorded. The season ends in September.

The main destinations for fresh mandarin exports are the U.S., the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Japan, and Canada, among others.
