Industrial apple prices rise in Poland

05/07/2020

Currently, apples for processing into juice, mashed potatoes and concentrate are already sold at a price of $ 0.10-0.12 / kg, which is on average 15% more expensive than at the end of last working week

This week, an apple intended for industrial processing has started to rise in price in Poland. This was reported by analysts of the EastFruit project with a link to the fresh-market website. The rise in prices in the industrial apple segment is due, first of all, to a rather limited supply of raw materials on the market amid high demand from factories.

Currently, apples for processing into juice, mashed potatoes and concentrate are already sold at a price of $ 0.10-0.12 / kg, which is on average 15% more expensive than at the end of last working week. Manufacturers explain the increase in prices by the increased demand of juice companies for raw materials.

Processors are forced to raise purchase prices due to a shortage of raw materials, because, given the fairly active demand for apples in the fresh market, many farmers are trying to sell the bulk in this direction. Under the current conditions, enterprises are afraid that they will not be able to fulfill plans for the procurement of raw materials, and are ready to review purchase prices upward.

It is worth noting that in early May 2019, the purchase price for an industrial apple in Poland was on average 36% lower than today. At the same time, market players do not exclude further appreciation in this segment, since most Polish gardeners are focused on the fresh market.
