Aggressive prices for blackberries and blueberries in Piacenza, while raspberries and currants are struggling

187

In the context of large-scale retail in Piacenza, the offering of berries varies significantly both in quality and price. Blueberries, many of which still come from Peru, are offered at low prices, a trend that also extends to blackberries. The latter are distinguished by their particularly affordable cost, which could attract consumers looking for good deals.

As for raspberries, the situation is diametrically opposite. These fruits are sold at very high prices.

The overall quality of berries in Piacenza leaves room for improvement. In general, it is not reported as optimal, with the sole exception of strawberries. These, of standard quality, are available at low prices.

Another note concerns currants, which are practically absent from store shelves.

The batches of processing reported as recent suggest that, despite some difficulties, there is a constant effort to maintain a regular and fresh flow of products.
