With autumn, the first Italian chestnuts entered the market with a 30% smaller harvest than last year’s, due to bad weather conditions and damage from the Chinese chestnut gall wasp.
In September 2019, apples were once again the most consumed fresh fruit, even more popular than bananas and grapes, in German households.
The total harvest has been put at 2.9 million tonnes. Cherries and mandarins accounted for a large part of the growth, as well as plums, nectarines, peaches and grapes.
As the Russian market has been practically inaccessible since 2014, the search for new export targets for Belgian fruit is a top priority for today’s industry.
Italian kiwi production is showing clear signs of recovery compared with last year.
Chile’s fruit exports suffer from the consequences of an unexpected hailstorm and the port strike a month ago. Nearly 750 workers demand wage increases and a bonus to end the conflict.
