EastFruit analysts draw attention to a sharp increase in the export of frozen berries from Ukraine in 2020. In the first four months of 2020, Ukrainian companies increased the export of frozen berries and fruits by 20% in real terms and by 37% in value terms compared with the same period in 2019.

Obviously, despite the coronavirus pandemic, the trade in frozen berries intensified precisely in the second half of the season, because in the first six months of the season (from July to December 2019 inclusive), the export of frozen berries and fruits decreased by 14% compared to the previous year in kind measurement and 6% – in value.

Among the categories of “frosts” that have grown more than others, it is worth noting the frozen strawberry garden. Its exports from Ukraine increased in 2020 compared to the same period last year more than doubled in physical terms. Also, more than 40%, increased exports of frozen raspberries. But the export of frozen forest blueberries remained at about the same level as a year earlier.

Nevertheless, if we talk about export volumes, then the leader remained forest blueberries, in terms of export volume, frozen raspberries came closer to it in physical terms and much less exported frozen strawberries.

The largest buyer of frozen strawberry garden (strawberries) from Ukraine in the first months of 2020 was Poland, which more than doubled the volume of purchases. The export of frozen strawberries to Germany and the Czech Republic increased even more sharply, which took second and third place in the ranking of buyers. It should also be noted the first rather large deliveries of this berry to the USA in 2020.

The three key countries for the supply of frozen raspberries were the same as for strawberries – Poland, the Czech Republic and Germany, while the largest increase in exports was recorded in Poland, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Belgium. Almost the same countries were among the leaders in procurement of forest blueberries in Ukraine in 2020.
