Bad weather conditions slowed down the berry consumption in Italy this week.
Prices for Peruvian and Argentinian punneted blueberries dropping to €6.50/Kg. Supermarkets are planning to promote blueberries with prices as low as €6.00/Kg delivered Italy for the next five weeks, in order to be ready for the Chilean arrivals.
Moroccan blueberries already available in small quantities, waiting for a better market condition to break in.
Italian Adelita raspberries are holding on, granting some higher price, around €7.20/Kg, but they don’t hit their initial price target. Raspberries from Morocco and Spain offered as low as €5.00/Kg delivered.
