Egypt Sets Record Orange Exports to Canada

According to a recent report, Egyptian orange exports to the Canadian market dramatically increased between January and March 2024, with Canada importing more Egyptian oranges in three months (9,052 MT) than its entire import volume in 2023 (7,629 MT). Egyptian oranges are usually available in Canada through June, so experts are expecting Egypt’s cumulative figure for 2024 to be even more impressive.

In 2023, the U.S. was Canada’s largest supplier of fresh oranges with 89,327 MT, followed by South Africa (42,759 MT), Spain (15,884 MT), and Morocco (12,426 MT).

With Egypt’s increased exports, it is on track to be Canada’s third-largest orange supplier for 2024, behind only the U.S. and South Africa. Egypt’s largest orange rivals, Spain and Morocco, have not seen similar growth in the Canadian market and have, in fact, seen reduced imports during the first quarter of 2024.
