Fruit consumption slowing down in China

China’s fruit demand is falling due to the economic slowdown. Ongoing supply chain disruptions are expected to keep transportation costs high and cause shortages in shipping containers adding uncertainty across the fruit trade, both for imports and exports. Sources indicate that recent energy shortages are not expected to impact deciduous fruit distribution, which relies only to a limited extent on electricity. The country’s 2021 apple crop is estimated at 45 million tons, while the pear and table grape crops are projected to total 18 million tons and 11 million tons, respectively, according to FAS Beijing.
