EU apple prices during the ongoing campaign are significantly above the average for the past five years, due to the small crop. According to Wapa/Prognosfruit data, this campaign’s crop is down 20% from the preceding year and 11% below the 5-year average.  Compared to the challenging 2018/19 campaign (excess of supply in some Member States, especially in Poland), 2019/20 has seen a great recovery in the sector. EU apple stocks on 1st December 2019 were at their lowest level since 2012.

EU apple production is likely to increase in the future, particularly in Poland, while consumption of fresh apples per capita keeps on decreasing.

That is among the predictions in the European Commission’s EU Agricultural Outlook for 2016-2026.

The report says efforts are being made to limit the decreasing consumption of apples, such as promotion campaigns and the EU school fruit scheme.
