Argentina: Blueberry export volumes slowing down

by Comité de Arándanos

Blueberries

The Argentinian blueberry is season is over its export peak. Export volumes to all destinations have dropped in week 46, except for Canada.  For example, the United States market imported 678.127 kg in week 46, compared to 1.034.028 kg in week 45. The Argentinian Blueberry Committee has published it’s update for week 46. See the below graph with the numbers for each destination.

This season has been different than expected. Before the season started, a forecast was published in which ABC published the expected export volumes of each week. In this forecast, week 46 shows an expected accumulated volume of 1.788.044 kg. However, the actual numbers show it has just reached a ton.

Last year volumes were higher. For example the accumulated volume in week 46 that has been exported was 1.304.356 kg. This is higher than the 1.006.469 kg of this year in the same week. The volumes will steadily decrease in the coming weeks. The season last year, with higher than current volumes, lasted until the last week of December.
