Less Thai dried papaya

This article was originally published in Foodnews

THE high season for Thai pineapple and papaya has started, with flooding no longer an issue. The pineapple crop is looking good and prices are stable. Demand for dehydrated pineapple is not expected to change, leaving the market in balance. For papaya, the situation is very different. This season the crop is expected to be 50% smaller than average, although quality will be fine. At present it is unclear as to whether prices will increase further and if so, how much and by when. According to CWF Thailand, buyers who are still looking for 2012 shipment (November/December) should look for immediate covering. The new Fuji apple crop is expected to arrive early November, with CWF able to ship their normal dehydrated apple slices, dices, chunks and cinnamon coated apples by mid-December onwards. For strawberries the season is coming to an end and CWF expects to be sold out by the end of the year. CWF’s new sweetened cherries project is proving so successful that the company is almost sold out. The reactions at SIAL were mainly positive.
