GLOBAL MARKET OVERVIEW TOMATOES

The increased cost of energy, which has hit many greenhouse growers hard, is also felt in the tomato market. In European countries like the Netherlands, these increased growing costs are eating into the profit margins of growers, despite high prices on the market. This situation, however, is seen as an advantage for some…

GLOBAL MARKET OVERVIEW GINGER

There appears to be a slight oversupply of ginger on the global market at the moment, a situation that is pushing down prices despite a reasonably stable demand across the board. The health benefits of ginger have been advantageous to the popularity of the product in the wake of the pandemic, a trend that has been noted on the…

GLOBAL MARKET OVERVIEW MANGOS

Prices of mangos are high for this time of year, particularly in Europe, it would seem. The political unrest following the recent election in major suppling country Brazil has meant that the usual shipments from this country are lacking. Recent rainfall has also affected the harvest, slowing it down and further limiting the…

GLOBAL MARKET OVERVIEW AVOCADO

The exotic avocado has increasingly become a staple on the shelves and in the diets of many countries, as its popularity has continued to rise over the years. Domestically grown avocados have seen a particular increase in interest in European countries such as Italy and Spain. This year, however, many growing countries are…

GLOBAL MARKET OVERVIEW ONIONS

Volumes of onion are down this winter in many countries, with a decrease of up to 40% in Spain, and less significant but still notable losses in Germany, France and the United States, among others. Large sizes are particularly hard to find, and this lack of supply has driven up the prices across much of the global market. This…

Global Market Overview Mandarins

The global mandarin market is a mixed bag at the moment. Low volumes combined with good demand for the citrus on many markets have meant the season has started with unusually high prices in countries such as the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Spain, as well as North America. However, these high prices are offset by increases in…

GLOBAL MARKET OVERVIEW PAPAYA

Prices for papaya are high across the global market, but there are different reasons for this in different locations. For many, the increase in price is due to the rising cost of air freight, which many importers of the exotic fruit rely upon. This is the case in the Netherlands, Germany, France and North America. South Africa…

GLOBAL MARKET OVERVIEW POTATOES

It looks like being a tough season for potatoes across much of the world. The hot dry weather during the growing season in most production countries has had a severe effect on potatoes, as it has many other crops. The global supply is predicted to be lower, as most countries appear to be expecting a slightly to significantly…

GLOBAL MARKET OVERVIEW GARLIC

Reports on the garlic market from across the globe show a varied picture for this popular and flavourful vegetable. The dry and warm growing season in Europe has meant a lower supply of larger sizes on many markets, as well as a drop in volumes from growing countries such as France, Italy and Spain, although there are reports…

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has imposed sanctions on five produce businesses for failing to meet contractual obligations to the sellers of produce they purchased…

GLOBAL MARKET OVERVIEW PEARS

The prospects for pears this season are generally positive, despite some countries like Spain, South Africa and China reporting issues with production due to adverse weather conditions, although in Spain this is somewhat compensated for with the high sugar levels, which were also seen in the Netherlands. In North America, the…

GLOBAL MARKET OVERVIEW PINEAPPLES

The global supply of pineapples is short and unpredictable mainly due to shipping issues. As the European summer comes to an end demand is also falling. In North America supply has been steady but tight, again due to shipping issues. Demand has been good through the summer. In the Southern Hemisphere…

GLOBAL MARKET OVERVIEW APPLES

As a staple fruit, apples remain ever popular in households worldwide. Many production areas, however, have been affected by unusual weather conditions during the growing season this year. In the UK, recent warm weather pushed the season forward by more than week for some varieties, whilst the same heat in France and Italy has…
