France’s apple stocks higher in 2015

At the end of October 2015, apple stocks are 21% higher than the same period in 2014, and 17% above the 2010-2014 average. 

The 14% increase over a year is due to French production increasing over the year. Export was up +1% in volume over a year and compared to the 5 year average in September, exports towards the EU saw a +7% increase, the opposite to sales on the national market. 

Over the first two months of the season, up until September, turnover at export was higher (+14%) than in 2014 and than the 5 year average (+14%), thanks to prices clearly increasing, notably towards Europe (+25%). In September, a very active demand for purées and juices allowed for apple prices to remain high for processing. 

Export on the European market was calmer in October and under competition from Italy. Prices at export were higher than on the domestic market. Prices decreased at the end of October but remained stable over the month and above the 2010-2014 average (+8%).
