Lemon Oil– Argentina


Apr 24th, 2020

Lemon harvest hast started in Argentina, crop of 1.4 million tons of fruit with 1.1 million tons going into processing are expected and these numbers represent an above average crop for Argentina.

This of course is dependent if Argentina can actually process this quantity or if further restrictions will not allow them to continue to harvest or harvest for a shorter period due to Covid-19.  Limitations are as fruit pickings are done by hand and depend on manual labor for the most part.   At this time, you need a special permit to work/limited workforce allowed and all people need to wear masks while on the fields.

Demand is picking up from EU and USA and this has allowed prices to somewhat become more stable.

Citrus – South Africa


Feb 28th, 2020

Harvest season for this part of the world usually starts end of April/beg. May 2020.

There was a drought period which occurred during the latter part of the blooming period.
As of now, a 30% decrease on the crop volumes are expected.  Even with this decrease, the crop is still a good number, as last year’s crop was a huge one.
Better figures will become available mid March.

China Update


Feb 19th, 2020

Berje’s sincere thoughts are with all those who continue to be impacted by the Coronavirus in China.

Many production sites have now resolved at least partial production, however, internal logistics and transportation still remain very challenged.  International flights and vessel space continue to be sparse and transportation delays and disruptions are unfortunately expected to continue for some period of time.

We are carefully monitoring our stocks and any potential risks, and as always, we are here to mitigate your supply chain disruptions using the depth of our domestic inventory and multiple sourcing strategies.

For any product specific inquiries, please contact your salesperson or customer care representative.
