Rainy weather slowed down the vegetation and reduced the current crop, which saved the prices of garden strawberries from a sharper decline in prices

The situation on the European market of fresh strawberry garden remains very difficult, analysts of the APK-Inform: Vegetables and Fruits project report citing fresh-market website. The crisis caused by the COVID-19 epidemic hit hard strawberry companies in southern Europe. It is also unknown when harvesting will begin in countries located in the north of the continent.

In the last week of March, the situation in the strawberry segment in Spain changed, in particular, due to lower consumption, as the main target markets began to significantly reduce the volume of purchased products due to the introduction of more stringent quarantine measures caused by the COVID-19 epidemic. On the other hand, rainy weather slowed down the growing season and lowered the current crop, which saved the prices of strawberry from a sharper decline in prices. To date, prices for this berry in Spain are announced from $ 0.90 / kg, which is on average 23% more expensive than a year ago. But this price, still remains quite low, in order to cover the production costs of growing garden strawberries.

Logistics problems and the fear of the risk of importing garden strawberries in such difficult conditions have contributed to a significant reduction in the supply of this berry on the Polish market. This, in turn, helped Polish traders avoid further price reductions in the strawberry garden segment. So, today, imported strawberry horticulture on the Polish market is offered for sale at a price of $ 2.15-2.86 / kg, which is on average 20% cheaper than at the end of March this year.
