French market, June 2001 : Indicators, banana, avocado, orange, grapefruit, lemon

Imbert E.. 2001. Fruitrop (English ed.) (82) : p. 24-29.

Banana : Summer 2001 started well. Indeed, June prices have not been as strong for three years. This good performance is explained mainly by the recovery of export movements and the modest volumes of fruits arriving from the West Indies and Africa. Avocado : After more active arrivals in April and May, the avocado market was again under-supplied in June. Winter origins were almost completely absent and South African fruits were particularly discreet. Prices increased spectacularly and regained the levels of the 1999/2000 season. Orange : The shortage of supplies was particularly marked. The winter seasons finished very early and the volumes of Navel from South Africa were well down on last year. Prices increased strongly and reached a historical level. Grapefruit : The quantities available reached only an average level as a result of the measured arrival of summer origins and the very early disappearance of fruits from Florida and Israel. Demand was meanwhile very active in June. As a result, prices did not decrease in comparison with May and the stocks available at the beginning of July are very limited. Lemon : The average price was distinctly higher even though the volumes available were much the same as last year's. Indeed, although Spain has conserved a clear position as leader, more shipments arrived from Argentina than in 2000, resulting in higher prices. (Résumé d'auteur)
