BLE market report KW 37 / 2020:

"First Regal Seedless grapes appear in Hamburg and Munich"

Italian table grapes dominated, with Italia, Michele Palieri, Sugraone and Crimson Seedless leading the way. The first Regal Seedless appeared in Hamburg and Munich. The presence of Victoria and Red Globe obviously diminished. From Turkey came Sultana and Crimson Seedless, whose importance had increased noticeably. Greece participated primarily with Crimson Seedless and Thompson Seedless at the stores. France sent in the exclusive Alphonse Lavallée.

In some places, interest was too weak. In order to get these
the distributors lowered their receivables, but this did not drive the processing consistently. When supply and demand were in balance, valuations generally remained constant. Occasionally, there were also price increases, for example in Munich, where the prices of Greek Crimson Seedless rose. In Frankfurt, customers had to dig deeper into their pockets for complementary local products.

Local batches shaped events. Overall, the availability was a little too extensive. However, due to discounts, the turnovers accelerated.

Italy dominated with Santa Maria and Abate Fetel, Williams Christ added. The wide range of products was enough to satisfy the demand without any problems. In many cases it was even too rich, which forced the distributors to take advantage of discounts if they wanted to avoid stocks.

Peaches and nectarines
The end of the sales period came closer and closer: the inflows dried up here and there for days on end. Although the range of goods was sufficient to satisfy the demand, it was not particularly strong.

Native Hauszwetschge, Presenta, Top and Fellenberg dominated events, together with Serbian Stanley. Demand was disappointing now and then and the traders were therefore forced to adjust their prices downwards.

Spanish Verna and South African Eureka shaped the scenery. Inflows from Chile and Turkey completed the scenery. Fruits from Uruguay and Bolivia also arrived locally.

Well-dosed inflows from the ripening plants, focused to the sales possibilities, resulted in a balanced ratio of the supply to the rather underwhelming demand.

Local shipments dominated, Dutch and Belgian dumping supplemented. Availability became noticeably limited and was not always sufficient to meet the demand.

German batches of iceberg lettuce were the most popular, Dutch batches followed in terms of importance. The quality had improved and prices went up as a result.

Local, Dutch and Belgian shipments formed the basis of the assortment. The supply dropped off noticeably. The excellent demand could not always be satisfied.

Prices went up. On the one hand, this was due to higher purchase demands, on the other hand, the distributors had stored fruit from the previous week that was not in good condition and were still able to increase their fresh produce prices.

Sweet peppers
The previously predominantly Dutch deliveries dropped off noticeably. On the other hand, cheaper Polish shipments came in. Although the Spanish season has started, these goods hardly generated any demand.
