Citrus exporters are hoping for a bumper season in the UK this year. Israel's major citrus exporting group Mehadrin Tnuport Export (MTEX) is anticipating increasing by 10% its supply of Suntina easy peelers to the UK.
The first fruit has arrived and is on sale, marking the start of the build up to peak arrivals lasting until mid February.
UK MD Dov Warmen said: "We are encouraged by the initial quality of the fruit, which is very juicy with a high sugar content."
