European Statistics Handbook 2021
The latest edition of FRUIT LOGISTICA’s annual European Statistics Handbook has been released and shows just how big an impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on Europe’s fresh fruit and vegetable business.
“That impact was mainly felt in two ways,” explains the publication’s author, Hans-Christoph Behr of AMI (Agrarmarkt Informations-Gesellschaft). “A limited availability of workers, and a sharp decrease in out-of-home consumption. But despite the huge challenges seen in the past year, the fruit and vegetable sector in Europe has managed to supply its population with fresh fruit and vegetables, without major disruption.”
