Morocco exports 430,000 tons of citrus fruits
Morocco has exported 430,000 tons of citrus fruits during the 2003-2004, said the producers association which label this season as “one of the weakest averages in the last years.“
The association of citrus fruits producers ASPAM in Morocco ascribed the weak volume to several factors, including a lower production and stiff competition, MAP reported.
The association also expressed its fears that the decline in the volume of exported fruits would affect income and, therefore, the financial profitability of citrus fruits orchards whose operation fees are already very high. (menareport.com)
