The cherry sector is experiencing a great season in Australia, and the production is expected to increase to 20,000 metric tons (MT) compared to the 2022-2023 period -12% higher than the last five years. However, for those enthusiasts who are thinking about purchasing, prices would rise for the holidays.

This was reported by the Australian site ABC.net.au, where they explain that the international market and the costs that producers are assuming are some of the reasons for this increase, which in any case, they classify as moderate.

Cherry Growers of Australia acting president and South Australian cherry grower Nick Noske explained to the outlet that “costs have gone up a lot for growers and they need to get a reasonable return.”

On the other hand, the difficult situation that Chile – the largest competitor and exporter of the fruit – is experiencing has increased demand, which could influence the internal increase in the price of cherries.

Quality above all

Despite this, Australia continues to expand as a star producer of cherries, with exports to different parts of the world and fruit that is characterized by its quality.
