Price of fruit has been soaring in Brazil

Last year, the price of fruit rose 35.36%, in the last 6 months of 2022, prices rose 13.15% above general inflation, which reached 4.77% in the same period. The fruits that had the greatest increase in in Brazil in the last year were:

  • Papaya - 99.39%
  • Watermelon - 81.60%
  • Strawberry - 73.86%
  • Melon - 61.15%
  • Mango - 47.51%
  • Passion fruit - 36.70%
  • Tangerine - 32.52%
  • Apple - 25.94%

In effect, the only fruits that were cheaper were lemons (-12.74%) and bay oranges (-5.24).

The reason for these increases is manifold. First, the cost to agricultural producers is high, so this is one of the main reasons for the increase in fruit prices, according to Maria Luiza Zacharias, director of new business at Horus, a market intelligence firm.

Among these costs, fertilizers can be mentioned. This is because Brazil imports this product to Russia, therefore, due to the conflict in the country, prices have increased considerably.

In addition to fertilizers, diesel fuel was also a catalyst for making fruit more expensive. Although the price of some fuels has fallen, such as gasoline (-15.48%) and ethanol (-11.38%), the same did not happen with diesel oil, which became more expensive (4.59%). in the month of July.
