BLE- Market report week 35/21:

'The strawberry campaign ended unspectacularly'

The strawberry campaign ended unspectacularly. Deliveries from Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium decreased more and more. The quality of the fruit was not consistently convincing, with divergent coloration. A certain degree of customer saturation could not be denied at this point in the season, as sales had become noticeably limited. As a result of inconsistent organoleptic properties, a wide price range was established in some places. In Frankfurt, for example, one had to pay 1.50 to 2.60 € per 500-g bowl of local produce. Small berry products from the Netherlands cost only €1 per 500 g there. In the course of the week, it was generally possible to clear the last stocks.
