Cheap Ukrainian AJCThis article was originally published in Foodnews
AJC PRICES started falling in Russia and Ukraine last week. According to Fruit-Inform, processors are offering AJC (almost certainly low acid) at EUR900 per tonne (USD1 270/tonne). Shipment terms are unknown. Fruit prices are reported to be relatively low at EUR0.09-0.11 per kg (equivalent to USD127-155/tonne). Such a price level makes it profitable for processors to buy dropped apples as well as bulk unsorted fruit.
