A study by consulting firm Agronometrics has compared the volumes and average prices of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries in the United States market, comparing these to previous seasons. It became obvious that only blueberries escape a trend of low prices, underlining that the four berry species share the fact that they have higher volumes than the previous season.
The prices achieved by blueberries during this 2021/2022 season have been higher than those of the previous season, especially in the increase generated from week 32 to week 38 of 2021. Then the prices of the blueberries fell slightly in week 39.
According to blueberriesconsulting.com, these prices registered in the last week in the North American market come from shipments from Mexico, Peru, Washington and Oregon.
