Processor buys less fruit

This article was originally published in Foodnews

AUSTRALIAN firm SPC Ardmona has informed growers in Victoria's Goulburn Valley that it will cut the amount of fruit it will buy this season by around 15%. It explained that a glut of canned fruit overseas, particularly in Europe and the US, means it is proving harder to export canned fruits. But John Wilson, from Fruit Growers Victoria, claims the cannery is trying to lower fruit prices. "More importantly, they can still deliver fruit in an above-quota regime, which simply means they get paid less for their fruit," he said. "It looks like the cannery has decided it will take a 4% discount on the fruit coming in this year."
