Apple imports drop

This article was originally published in Foodnews

RUSSIA's Fruit-Inform Project reports that there was a considerable decrease in apple imports by the country in the first two months of 2011. Apple imports in January and February 2011 were 7.3% lower than in the same months of 2010. "Russia lowered apple imports due to growth of prices being sharper than in the last season, and overall shortage of high-quality apples in Poland and EU", Andriy Yarmak, Head of Fruit-Inform Project, said. "However, the decrease in apple imports was compensated by growth of imports of bananas, oranges, and mandarins which grew by 7%, 26%, and 14% respectively over first two months of 2011." Poland was the major supplier of apples to the Russian market over the two months. According to estimates, Poland's total market share for apple imports in January and February reached 37%. China and Serbia made up the top-three major suppliers followed by Germany, Moldova, Belgium, and Ukraine.
