Orange production in Brazil

Orange production in Brazil is responsible for a 59% share of the world market (2005).

In 2004 Brazil produced 1.4 million tonnes of oranges annually, compared to 709,000 tonnes in the United States. Brazil is the world's largest producer of orange juice.

The Brazil Association for Citrus Exporters operates in the country.

The state of São Paulo responds, alone, with a total of 79% of all orange production in the country, which in turn is the largest producer and exporter of orange juice, accounting for half of world production, of which 97% are intended for export. Brazil and United States are the world's largest producers of citrus, with 45% of the total, which still stand South Africa, Spain and Israel, said the fresh orange and tangerines.
