Chilean Citrus Committee Karen Brux Releases Chilean Navel Crop Update Video
CHILE - The Chilean citrus crop kicked off strong this year, with the arrival of Chile’s largest cumulative citrus export crop to date. Continuing that trend, the Chilean navel crop is going strong for the season, which will end in October.
“August is the month of greatest navel supply out of Chile. As of August 6, Chile had shipped 94% of all navel exports to the U.S. Volume shipped here YTD is 53,413 tons, up 27% from the same time last year,” commented Karen Brux, Managing Director, Chilean Fresh Fruit Association.
