Orange, garlic, and carrots had the biggest price differences from origin to destination

The price of watermelon at its destination was on average 503% higher than at its origin

The Food Price Index at Origin and Destination, prepared and shared by the Spanish agricultural organization COAG, showcases the price difference there was between the price paid to producers at origin and the price that the final consumers paid for the main agricultural products in the month of June.

After having experienced an unfortunate season, orange prices experienced the biggest rise last month as final consumers paid €1.48/kg of oranges, i.e. 887% more than the €0.15/kg producers were paid for this product in the fields.

Garlic prices also increased considerably between origin and destination, as they went from €0.70/kg in the fields to €5.94/kg for the final consumer, i.e. a 749% increase.

Carrot and potato prices at source did not exceed 20 cents per kilo at origin while lettuce prices stood at € 0.18/kg at origin. Their prices increased by 629%, 575%, and 511%, respectively, which means consumers paid more than 1 euro per kilo of these products.

Summer fruit also had considerable price differences. In June, the price of watermelon increased by 503% between its origin and destination, going from €0.36/kg to €2.17/kg; plum prices increased by 592%, as farmers were paid €0.66/kg in the fields and consumers paid €4.37/kg for this product.
