The Covid-19 pandemic has benefited the Algarve citrus industry with an increase in demand and prices.
José Oliveira, president of AlgarOrange, which brings together nine companies and associations of citrus growers from all over the Algarve, told Lusa that this is one of the sectors that “has suffered least from the pandemic” and that the summer varieties of orange are being sold “at practically twice” the price of the previous year.
