Assortment update July - Argentinian lemon season has not yet ended at FMI

This summer we will continue to work on renewing, expanding and perfecting our range at FMI. Due to phytosanitary issues Argentina was forced to stop exporting to the EU since the 1st of July. For that reason Argentinian season will finish sooner than expected. At FMI we will still have Argentinian lemons arriving and available in the coming weeks. We receive 6KG and 18KG in our brand Royal Fresh.

Enough limes from Mexico and Brazil available again after shortages

​After a challenging season with a high supply and often low prices, the limes market in Europe has recovered in recent weeks. Due to the drought in Mexico, there were almost no Mexican limes available and Brazil, partly due to good domestic demand, exported significantly less volumes to Europe. This resulted in high prices, mainly on the spot market.
