Ciruelas: producción global 2011/12, incluyendo stocks y nuevos cultivos, se estima en 350.000 toneladas
GLOBAL domestic consumption of prunes is slowly improving, probably as a result of the economic crisis, the general secretary for the International Prune Association (IPA) Christian Amblard announced at last week’s conference held in Davis, California. Exported quantities also appear to have recovered, with total sales in 2010 at 280 000 tonnes.
Total supply in 2011/12, including stocks and new crops, is recorded at 350 000 tonnes.
Various prune crop shortages across the world, primarily as a result of climatic conditions, has contributed to stable production volumes, probably welcome news as overall consumption remains stagnant.
