The representatives of wholesale companies inform the experts of `Agrooglyad: Fruits and Vegetables` project that the prices for Chinese apple are increasing in Russia. This situation is the most vivid in Siberian Federal Okrug through which the main supplies of imported apple to inner market are performed. To the importers` opinion, this circumstance is explained by the increased apple consumption and, as a result, the price growth in China.
The increased demand is observed both in the segments of marketable and commercial apples. Additionally, the importers speak about quite high quality of Chinese apple this season - this also stimulates the prices to increase for this product.
According to tentative data, apple prices in China have already been 10-15% higher than in the previous season; to the specialist`s opinion, this trend will be preserved on market in future.
