MANILA. Extreme weather conditions and limited capacities in the Philippine ports are currently delaying shipments noticeably. Experts fear that this situation will continue in the coming months.

All production stages affected

In Southeast Asia, the typhoon season has reached its peak and as an island state, the Philippines are being hit with full force. As a La Niña weather phenomenon is also expected, meteorologists predict that the heavy rainfall will continue for several months. In the coconut processing sector, practically all stages of production will be affected: from farmers to production factories and suppliers, because there will also be considerable delays on the shipping routes.
