Brazilian Exporters Cannot Supply All the Demand for the Thanksgiving Holiday in South Korea
Market & Price Trends
Published Sep 2, 2022
Korean demand for Brazilian Mangos increased in August, preparing for Korean Thanksgiving. The few Brazilian suppliers authorized to export to Korea could not meet all the demand from the market since the quality of mangos was below the requirement due to heavy rains and the effects of the hot water treatment. Also, the Brazilian mango production this season was mainly composed of size 9 and 10 mangos, which did not allow to cover the Korean demand for mangos sized 7 and 8.
