Ukraine set a record in frozen raspberry export


In the period of January – November 2016 Ukrainian berry growers exported more than 6,5 thousand tones of frozen raspberry. This volume exceeds the result achieved in 2015 by 3 times. Basically this year Ukraine exported the biggest amount of frozen raspberry in the complete period of its independent history.
The biggest part of supplies was delivered in August and September. This means that the exported frozen raspberry was mostly of remontant varieties. Only in August 2016 Ukraine has exported 2 thousand tones of raspberry which makes 75% of the total volume in 2015. In September the result was 1,8 thousand tones.
Such growth in volume was achieved by the increase in production as well as stable demand for Ukrainian berries in Europe. In fact EU became the main consumer of UA berries in 2016.
