México: disminuye producción de peras y uvas, aumentan las manzanas
Overall, Mexico’s market year (MY) 2022/23 deciduous fruit production is projected to remain steady year-to-year, with apple production increasing marginally by 1 percent, but from what is estimated to be a small MY 2021/22 crop. Table grape production is projected to decrease 3 percent. Mexico’s minimal pear production is also projected to decrease slightly.
Increased demand from a rejuvenation of Mexico’s hospitality and food service sectors post-pandemic are tempered by continued pressure upon household budgets due to high food prices. Domestic consumption of pears is projected down while apple and grape consumption is forecast to increase only slightly. Despite domestic production challenges across all three crops, trade volumes are also relatively static.
