In the last 12 months, sales reached a value of almost €22 million. The sales volume increased too, reaching little over 2.1 million kg (+22.3%), as well as units sold (+22.7% at 8.3 million packets).
North-western Italy is where fresh-cut fruit is most popular, so much so that it generates 50% (a little over €11 million) of the sales value. Percentage-wise, however, the growth was lower than in other areas (+14.5%).
The remaining half of the sales is carried out in north-east and central Italy and Sardinia. Both areas reach €5 million and only a few hundred thousand Euro apart. Both experienced an increase in sales value (+29.5% and +23% respectively).
Other interesting data can be gathered by analysing packaging. Half of the sales comes from plastic punnets, which have become even more popular than the other packaging solutions during the period examined (+34.8% in value).
The second most popular packaging, i.e. other types of punnets, have gone down (-10.6%), though the third most popular packaging type has increased (bowls, +8.9%). We must also consider the performance of tins, which practically doubled their sales value (+95.7%) and plastic-wrapped fruit (+159.1%).
