Switzerland: record sales of potatoes and lemons

Sales of organic lemons in the Swiss retail trade reached a record level in March. On average, 161 tonnes of organic lemons were sold per week, (47% more than in February and 53% more than in March of the previous year). The proportion of organic lemons remained almost unchanged from the previous month at 42 %.

Potatoes record peak sales
In March the average weekly sales of organic potatoes in the retail trade were 232 tonnes. This is 32% more than in the same month of the previous year and marks a peak value in the last three years. Conventional potatoes recorded an even stronger increase (+42%), which is why the organic share fell to 9.7%.
