EU apple prices moving significantly above five year average prices

Apple prices in the EU during the ongoing campaign are moving within ranges significantly above the average price for the historical reference 5 year period.

However, when comparing to the difficult preceding marketing year (excess of supply in some Member States, especially in Poland) a very important price recovery was observed.

According to Wapa/Prognosfruit the new crop is relatively small (-20% on preceding year and -11% below 5 year reference average). In this context average prices for the new crop are expected to go far beyond the 5 year average).

The EU price average is significantly above the reference average. At Member State level, however, situations diverge to some extent:

  • prices in PL had a major positive change from previous very low levels;
  • FR prices are above reference average but lower than the preceding campaign (this is an exception to the rule, France increased production during this period);
  • DE prices were slightly above average;
  • IT prices recovered gradually from a difficult end to the previous marketing year.
