French market, July/August 2001 : Indicators, banana, avocado, orange, grapefruit, lemon

Imbert E.. 2001. Fruitrop (English ed.) (83) : p. 24-29.

Banana : The market displayed hardly any of the traditional summer stagnation. After a fairly difficult early July, the situation improved rapidly thanks to distinctly smaller import volumes and an active movement of exports to northern Europe, where there was a shortage of dollar banana. Prices were up strongly in comparison with 2000. Avocado : Important readjustments took place on the avocado market during the summer. Indeed, the particularly firm prices observed in June generated huge demand for volumes and distinctly slowed the naturally low demand during the holiday period. Orange : The particularly early end of the late orange season in Spain and a marked decrease in shipments from South Africa to the European Union at the beginning of the season enabled orange prices to reach record levels. The results for the two months are therefore still very positive in spite of a turnaround in market conditions in mid-July. Grapefruit : The market has never been as under-supplied during the summer. Prices reached historic levels. Lemon : The lemon market displayed amazing resistance to particularly strong supply pressure during these two summer months, following a considerable increase in arrivals from Argentina.
