BLE market report week 42/2021:

'Spanish deliveries increased, presence of Belgian peppers decreased'

Spanish deliveries increased, forming the basis of the bell pepper assortment. The previously dominant Dutch lots lost importance and were no longer consistently convincing in terms of quality: Their season was nearing its conclusion. The presence of Belgian products also diminished, according to the latest BLE market and price report.

From Turkey, only green and red items were supplied. Polish items as well as first Moroccan imports played a complementary role on various occasions. Class II offers from Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Poland were conspicuously frequent, which of course had a negative effect on the prices. In general, demand was satisfied without any effort. Excessive inflows from Spain caused downward price corrections. This generally affected the entire range of goods. In Berlin, Polish products were mostly responsible for the price reductions: these cost a mere €5 to €7 per 5 kg carton and thus dragged down the prices of the competition.

Local fruit predominated. Supply and demand were mostly in balance. Sales improved here and there after the end of the fall holidays.

There was not a lot of movement: Italian Abate Fetel and Santa Maria continued to dominate, with Turkish Santa Maria and domestic Alexander Lucas coming next.

Table grapes
Deliveries from Italy increased. Demand was met without difficulty. In some places, demand was somewhat weak, but this did not have a fundamental effect on prices.

Small-fruited citrus
Inflows from Spain grew significantly in both clementines and satsumas. The organoleptic characteristics of the items had often improved.

Availability expanded steadily, with Spanish offerings being the priority. South African and Turkish imports followed in terms of importance.

Business was quite mixed, with the majority seeing a slight drop in prices compared to the previous week.

Domestic offerings dominated the market. Sales were somewhat quiet, highlights were hard to discern. Supplies were sufficient to meet a steady demand.

Lettuce from Belgian greenhouses increased in price in certain areas. On the one hand, the quality of the offers had improved, on the other hand, the quality of the domestic lots had decreased, which is why customers preferred to buy Belgian lettuce.

The campaign of Belgian, Dutch and German lots, on the other hand, was nearing its end, and unloading was considerably limited. Demand was not particularly strong and could be met without difficulty.

In the case of TOVs, mainly Albanian, Polish and domestic fruits complemented the assortment dominated by Dutch and Belgian batches. Regarding flesh tomatoes, the first Moroccan imports arrived to join the dominant Belgian lots.
