Polonia: Producción de jugo de manzana disminuirá 27% en año comercial 2017/18
Poland is the EU’s largest producer and exporter of apple juice and apple juice concentrate (CAJ). In MY 2016/17, production reached 300,000 MT. Post forecasts that in MY 2017/18, the smaller crop will lead to a 27-percent decrease in CAJ production from the previous year. MY 2017/18 CAJ production will depend on the quality of apples which will appear on the market in the second half of the MY 2017/18. If the current information about developing fruit diseases in fruit storages is confirmed, the fall in production of apple concentrate may be lower than expected in December 2017. Industry sources report concerns that a large portion of the crop may not meet consumer standards for dessert fruits.
