Reduced apple harvest

This article was originally published in Foodnews

APPLE production in the Indian AJC-producing state of Himachal Pradesh will be around 18 million boxes of 25kg each, considerably less than last year's 26 million boxes, according to the state's horticulture minister Narender Bragta. The Horticultural Produce Market-ing and Processing Corp (HPMC), which buys apples for processing, has so far bought just 700 tonnes. At the same point in last year's season, it had bought 35 000 tonnes. Companies like Parle Agro, Godrej Industries Foods Division, Nestlé and Mohan Meakins Ltd regularly buy AJC from HPMC, but this season will have to source much of their AJC elsewhere. The high fresh market price is blamed for the shortfall: about 90% of Himachal Pardesh's apples go for fresh sale.
