Alemania: producción de jugo concentrado de manzana caería esta temporada
Germany’s streuobstbau (back yard) apple harvest will be much smaller this year, according to the German Fruit Juice Industry (VdF).
The VdF reckons that the streuobstbau harvest will be no more than 400,000 tonnes, compared with 600,000 tonnes last year (FOODNEWS 12 October 2012) and that the German harvest overall will be down by 30%. This does not bode well for German apple juice in the coming season: all the streuobstbau fruit goes to processing, and if the VdF’s estimates are accurate (and the data is very painstakingly gathered), then German AJC production from the streuobstbau alone could be down by as much as 25,000 tonnes.
