The average amount spent by French households on fruit and vegetables increased by 0.9%, from €407.5 to €411.3 between 2017 and 2018.

By contrast, the average quantity purchased over a year has decreased from 168.3kg to 162.4kg. The price rises concern fruit the most (+5.1%), from €2.42 to €2.55/kg.

“This increase is most noticeable in metropolitan areas, where average purchase prices have risen 10.4% year on year,” according to the report.
