There has been a 40 or 50- cent price increase for a box of oranges this year but this lias not affected the market de- mand. One warehouse manager said the same quantity of oranges has teen bought and sold this year as in past years. Exact quantities of oranges or the dollar value was not available although one manager said -his firm participated in five ship-loads of oranges dur- ing the season. These were dis- tributed across Canada. The big change this year is the economic move by Japan to cardboard boxes, replacing the (naditional wooden containers bound in hemp rope. A manager said this new method of packaging makes the oranges easier to handle and to inspect. Before, the plant personnel had to pry open a box where they now just have to flip open a lid. Some of the bigger custom- ers of one warehouse have ac- tually insisted on the wooden containers because the public seems to demand the tradition- al aspect of them. Cardboard seems to take some of the Christmas romance from the fruit, he said. Two managers contacted dis- agreed on the quality of the oranges one said it was the same and the other suggested the quality was better. The oranges were received about two weeks earlier this year because the Japanese growers went to an earlier ma- turing fruit variety. It stall is the mandarin, easy to peel, "zipper skin" type of orange the Canadian public is used to, he said. "This orange remains a big part of the Christmas season and people pay the higher prices because it is a once-a- year he said. He remembered ISMfi when oranges sold for 99 cents per box and retailers still managed a profit.
