Romania. Cherry prices soar

25.05.2017

In Romania hail and frost severely affected cherry production, causing about 50% loss of crops. This decrease in volumes leads to a sharp rise in prices.
 
Consumer prices are already close to 5 times the levels seen in a normal year. Some imported cherries are even more expensive.
   
These price increases could subside in a few weeks with the massive arrivals of cherries from Greece where an abundant volume is expected, from Bulgaria and Hungary.
