Polish growers forced to reduce their apple prices

Apple prices have been going down in Poland and are already 10% lower week-on-week, according to Fruit-Inform.

Now growers offer their apples at 0.28-0.45 euro/kg, depending on quality and variety, while a week before prices were not lower than 0.31 euro/kg. The Polish growers connect negative trend with an increase in the supply of produce from unequipped storage facilities, as sellers try to sell those apples until frosts.

Nevertheless, growers manage to maintain prices of currently most expensive Gala apples. As a week before, their prices still vary between 0.38-0.45 euro/kg thanks to high demand for this variety.

It should be noted that the demand for other apples has been rather moderate for long time. Despite that, prices are averagely 2.4 times as high as in the same period of the previous year due to lower apple production in Poland.
