EU’s Import Demand for Fresh Grapefruit


  • Lee, Jonq-Ying


This report provides fresh grapefruit import data regarding European Union 15 (EU-15) and an in-depth look into the share changes for fresh grapefruit imports by country of origin during the period from 1989 through 2006. The Rotterdam demand system was used to study the relationship among the fresh grapefruit imported by the EU-15 from several major Northern Hemisphere grapefruit producing countries. Results suggest that when Florida’s grapefruit industry recovers from the damages caused by hurricanes and diseases, price would decrease and exports to the EU-15 would expect to increase.
