Fresh produce snapshots as 2010 output draws to a wintry ending

This article was originally published in Foodnews

THE start of the 2010 fruit and vegetable season in France saw a considerable decline in imports compared with 2009, due in part to unfavourable weather conditions in the main supplier countries. Imports of tomatoes and courgettes between January and July were down on the five-year average for the same period, as were imports of cherries, apricots and peaches in the months May to July, Agreste reports. Marked reductions in imports of Moroccan vegetables reached 24% for tomatoes and 28% for courgettes. From the beginning of the season to October prices of imported fresh produce were in general higher than in the same period last year.
