French market November 2001 : Indicators, banana, avocado, orange, grapefruit, easy peelers

Imbert E.. 2001. Fruitrop (English ed.) (86) : p. 12-17.

Banana: The banana market recovered in November, as usual, after a very difficult October. Supplies were markedly down in comparison with last year's and demand picked up, especially for export sales. Avocado: The avocado market has rarely been as difficult as it was in November 2001 even though overall supplies were just at an average level. The very poor performance is explained by the abnormally low demand (especially in the supermarket and hypermarket sector) and by particularly strong competition between Israeli operators. Orange: As usual, demand for oranges was slow throughout November. However, the balance for the month is comparatively satisfactory as prices are noticeably up on last year's. Grapefruit: Performances varied considerably from one origin to another. The market was fairly wellbalanced for pink fruits from Florida and large Turkish fruits. In contrast, other origins (Israel, Cuba, Mexico and Honduras) and small Turkish fruits found it difficult to gain a position. Easy peelers: These performed fairly satisfactorily as prices and volumes both increased by more than 10%. However, demand was mediocre during the first half of the month because of the fragility of a large proportion of the fruits supplied. The transition to varieties that keep better and temperatures that better encourage citrus consumption reversed the trend in mid-November. (Résumé d'auteur)
