The price of orange has increased by one percent in the US, due to the belief that vitamin C fights COVID-19
The price of orange juice rose sharply this week in several markets such as New York, in the United States, driven by the demand from consumers who hope that vitamin C will help them fight the coronavirus pandemic.
The pound of orange juice rose more than 20 percent in five days to hit $ 1.2 usd on the New York market, a level it reached last year around this time, but had evolved since then.
Orange juice is one of the “most benefited products on the markets” at the moment, AxiCorp analyst Stephen Innes told AFP because of its “immunostimulatory properties.” Brazil, with two-thirds of world production, according to data compiled by Rabobank, is by far the main supplier.
