Tomatoes: Offers from the Med pushing to the foreground
While the Central European shipments sustained some negligible losses in their presence, those from the Mediterranean moved ever more to the foreground, although the ones from Spain followed in rather limited amounts. The inflows from Turkey were partially stopped, because the revenues they achieved were not satisfactory. The representation of Germany and Poland has been declining, while France was represented, to a lesser degree, as before. Due to predominantly weaker, inadequate marketing, the ratings collapsed throughout. It mostly affected the loose, round tomatoes. The poor coloring forced sales to € 4 per 6 kg crate. The firmness of the Moroccan batches could not save these either. The price reductions pushed through the entire assortment: the dominant trusses of tomatoes from the Netherlands and Belgium were spared no more than the Belgian and Dutch cherry tomatoes that defined the sales. There were hardly any exceptions. Even beef tomatoes could hardly escape this process. The demands were only rarely stable, and more commonly dropped successively.
Germany shaped events with many varieties. Altogether, the apples remained at the level of the previous week, because the deliveries coincided with the needs.
Italian batches determined the business. Indigenous Williams Christ continuously became less important, and passed off the retail market here and there.
Turkish Sultana, Italian Italia and Brazilian Thompson Seedless headed a broad product palette. In addition to these, Italy supplied many other varieties.
New Zealand dominated and was ahead of Italy and Greece. The availability oriented to the demand as usual, so that there were no significant changes with regard to the ratings.
Because normally the accommodation facilities were quite limited due to the weather, and the availability expanded rapidly, dropping asset prices could not be avoided.
Small citrus fruit
Spain shaped events for satsumas. Turkey, Italy and Croatia supplemented. The calm demand was covered without a problem. The appeals often had to be reduced.
The predominant Spanish batches were consistently completed by Turkish imports. The quality mostly met the demands of the customers.
Although the supply was almost always sufficient and, as usual, oriented to the accommodation facilities, stable prices could only be partially pushed through.
The predominant indigenous batches were normally abundant. Belgium and France completed the assortment, mostly within correctly measured limits.
The availability of Belgian and indigenous head lettuce was limited. Nevertheless, the quotations tended downward rather than upward because of modest purchasing tendencies.
The Spanish snake cucumbers have expanded their position at the head of the offers. The Central European producer regions rapidly became less important.
Business was firmly in the hands of Spanish produce. Thanks to adequate supplying, the permanent demand could be covered effortlessly. Unchanged prices were mostly based in a limited supply.
Constant manageable shipments of Spanish onions originated exclusively from Spain. Higher prices could hardly assert themselves, which is why in general, modifications were not made.
