"Prices of the top fruit are at a first class level. Pears have slowly increased in price and are sold on average at 60 to 70 cents. The price of apples is about 50 cents and that is also good. We enter the season in a positive mood and that is how it should be after last year. Some complain about producer Poland, but their quality is not as good and mainly for processing. 35 cents for the fresh market and 25 cents for processing, that is a good basis for the market in Europe. "
In addition to top fruit Veiling Borgloon also still market soft fruit, such as blackberries and redcurrants. "This is going quite well. Strawberries are low in volume now. Supply is still about 30 to 40 tons per day and trading is difficult. Supply and demand are no longer balanced."
