“In recent days there has been a greater movement in the commercialization of Chilean fruit in secondary Chinese markets, such as Changsha, Zhengzhou, Chengdu, and Chongquing, among others. This is contributing to the sales recorded in the traditional wholesale markets, such as Shanghai and Guangzhou, which has allowed us to lower the stocks of cherries and other fruits,” said Ronald Bown, the president of ASOEX.
Bown added that the latest market reports of February 18 show an increase in the volume of cherries sold, with 33 containers, as well as the beginning of the table grape movement, with 8 containers. In addition, 17 containers of nectarines and 21 containers of plums have also been marketed.
“The markets in China, are currently selling around 70 containers, driven by cherries, nectarines, and plums, and daily sales are increasing by 24% in relation to the last days. Currently, there are 1,478 containers available for sale in China,” Bown stated.
According to data, there were a total of 1,478 containers in China by February 18 (564 containers of cherries, 448 of nectarines, 192 of blueberries, 179 of plums, 55 of avocados, and 40 of table grapes).
The stock of cherry containers is expected to end during the course of next week.
