China: Satisfying produce, export faces tough times

The Crown pears and Gala apples are now available at medium sizes and have the right color as expected. In about 2-3 weeks, TOMCO is expecting additional varieties of apples such as Red Star, Delicious and Fuji apples. With pears, Ya pears will be available soon.

“Apples and pears seems to be a bit higher on prices than last year but it is still early to say, we must wait till next week to see what will happen”, says Younger Liu, Managing Director of TOMCO.

TOMCO also exports snow peas, asparagus and pomelos. “Snow peas and asparagus are very slow and export goes with a reduced volume compared from previous years. The pomelo industry has been destroyed due to the disaster of last crop in 2008, most packers are short of cash and they are asking for better payment terms.”

Australia as the main market still has very strong local supplies. Importers are experiencing considerably losses on sales and some local dealers are also starting to lose. “It is very difficult to see that this is happening in Australia.”
