BLE Market Report - Week 11:

'Season for small citrus fruits consistently progressed toward its end'

The season for small citrus fruit was consistently coming to an end: both demand and availability were dwindling. In addition, the organoleptic properties of the offerings were dropping off visibly. Perfect quality batches were rare and therefore prices increased in various cases. Spanish Nadorcott and Orri mandarins predominated.

From Israel, only Orris came in. Morocco participated with small quantities of Nadorcotts. From Turkey, Murcotts were sent over. Clementines took almost complete leave from the scene: Only in Munich, there were still a few Spanish products, but they disappeared from the assortment in the course of the week

The range was still broad. Demand generally harmonized with supply, so retailers rarely had cause to modify their previous prices.

The presence of South African imports grew steadily. Availability expanded, but this did not fundamentally affect prices.

Table grapes
South African batches dominated events, led by Crimson Seedless, Thompson Seedless and Flame Seedless. Dan Ben Hannah, Prime Seedless and La Rochelle were other varieties that could be accessed.

Spanish blonde oranges predominated: Navelate and Lane Late now formed the base of the range. Navel and Salustiana lost importance. Valencia Late and Navel came from Egypt, and Washington Navel from Turkey predominated.

The range consisted primarily of Spanish Primofiori and Turkish Lama. The supply expanded and was sufficient to satisfy demand.

The ripeners sufficiently matched the supply to the demand. Consequently, prices often remained stable.

Deliveries from Italy increased, but not to the extent that French offloads became less important. Thus, availability narrowed.

Lettuce came primarily from Belgium. In some places, storage was not without problems, which had a negative impact on prices.

The Netherlands dominated the scene, with Belgium and Germany playing a complementary role. Availability expanded, interest could be satisfied without effort.

An extensive range was available, in which TOVs predominated. was handled without problems thanks to an appealing quality.

Sweet peppers
Spanish deliveries dominated and were usually able to meet demand on their own. However, Dutch and Belgian supplies increased, which had a selective effect on the prices of Spanish batches.

Greek and domestic shipments predominated in the white spear sector. Provisioning expanded greatly, sometimes outstripping sales opportunities.
