Fresh & Cash LLC: Spanish berry season is already in full swing

"Short supply of avocados, plenty of mangoes available"

At this time, the market for exotic fruits is developing in different ways: while Brazilian mangoes of the Kent and Keith varieties are fully available, there is a shortage of avocados. Meanwhile, Spanish and Moroccan berries are available in abundance, said Cevdet Cavusoglu of the Wuppertal-based wholesale company Fresh & Cash.

Regarding mangoes; the two main varieties from Brazil -Kent and Keith- are now dominating the scene. Shipped goods in the most sought-after calibres are readily available and the sales are quite brisk, Cavusoglu confirms. The prices are mostly in the middle range, he continues. "Until a few days ago, we also offered air cargo. Here too, demand has been quite gratifying due to the good quality."

Bottleneck for avocados
Avocados of the main variety -Hass- are now rather scarce, due to the ship delays, but the price situation is still within the normal range: "We offer our customers both standard goods and ready-to-eat goods, which are on average twice as expensive. Until this week we hardly received any goods for about 4 weeks, now we hope that the coming weeks will see deliveries arriving as usual," says the wholesaler.

Good market for soft fruit
Meanwhile, the Spanish and Moroccan soft fruit campaign has gained momentum, Cavusoglu says. "There are significantly more Spanish strawberries than usual. Blueberries and raspberries from Spain and Morocco are also available in pleasing quantities at quite low prices," he concludes.
