Inde - Les exportations de mangues pourraient reculer de 25%

La production de mangues est prévue à la baisse et va entrainer un recul des exportations.
 
Des pluies inhabituelles et des orages de grêle pendant la floraison ont endommagé de nombreuses cultures, surtout dans le nord du pays. Les pertes pourraient atteindre 30 à 40% des récoltes.
 
Les prévisions initiales tablaient sur 19,27 millions de tonnes produites cette année (18,43 millions de tonnes l'année dernière) mais les professionnels pronostiquent une production bien inférieure.
 
Cette faible production aura des répercussions directes sur le prix des fruits et les exportations. Les prix seront au moins 25% plus élevés que l'année précédente. AIMGA (All India Mango Growers’ Association) estime que les exportations vont connaitre une baisse de 25 à 30% cette année. 
 
L'Inde a exporté 41 280 tonnes de mangues en 2013/14 (50,6 millions USD) et 55 585 tonnes en 2012/13 (48,5 millions USD.

Les légumes et fruits flamands dans le top mondial

Leurs noms ne vous sont peut-être pas connus. Univeg est spécialiste des fruits et des légumes frais. Greenyard (ex Pinguin Lutosa) se concentre sur les fruits et les légumes congelés ou en boite, notamment la marque Pinguin, et Peatinvest est active dans le secteur horticole: les produits pour cultiver les plantes, ce que l'on appelle les substrats. Ces trois sociétés ont un point commun, à savoir le même actionnaire majoritaire: Deprez Holding.

Des fournisseurs sur 5 continents

Après la fusion, le groupe emploiera environ 6600 personnes, exploitera une vingtaine de sites de production dans une petite dizaine de pays et disposera d'une importante logistique, le tout pour un chiffre d'affaires de 3,7 milliards d'euros. Le groupe fait ses achats sur cinq continents comme l'explique Marleen Vaesen, administratrice déléguée de Greenyard: "Pour les légumes surgelés et conditionnés, c'est plutôt l'Europe, essentiellement Belgique, France, Royaume-Uni, Pologne et Hongrie. Pour les légumes et fruits frais, on les recherche dans le monde entier. Nous sommes actifs dans 27 pays et 5 continents".

A l'échelle mondiale

Si l'on compare dans le même secteur: le nouveau groupe aura le même taille que les américaines Chiquita et Del Monte et sera deux fois plus grand que la française Bonduelle avec une particularité. A une telle taille, il s'agira de la seule à être significativement présente dans les trois filières, le frais, les congelés et les conserves.

Les trois sociétés ayant le même actionnaire de référence, quelle est la motivation de la fusion? L'objectif est d'assurer la  croissance à long terme. Il s'appuie sur une analyse de l'évolution du marché. Marleen Vaesen: "Il y a des opportunités importantes dans le marché. Les gens ne mangent pas assez de fruits et légumes et la tendance à les encourager à en consommer plus est évidente. C'est pourquoi nous pensons qu'il est stratégiquement important de fusionner les trois groupes pour offrir les légumes et les fruits dans toutes les formes disponibles".

Le regroupement des trois sociétés se fera sous la coupole de Greenyard

On ne connait pas encore la date du rapprochement. Il n'est d'ailleurs pas sûr à 100 % mais très peu d'observateurs doutent de sa faisabilité. En pratique, le regroupement des trois sociétés se fera sous la coupole de Greenyard qui est cotée à la bourse de Bruxelles. L'actionnariat de référence sera toujours la famille Deprez avec à ses cotés deux sociétés sud-africaines ainsi la GIMV société régionale flamande d'investissement. Greenyard restera cotée à la bourse de Bruxelles. Les investisseurs apprécient. L'action a progressé de plus de 8 % lundi et de de plus de 50 % sur un an.

Lutte contre l’introduction de la bactérie Xylella fastidiosa

La bactérie Xylella fastidiosa qui est transmise et dispersée par des insectes s’attaque à différentes espèces végétales (vigne, agrumes, prunus, café, avocat, luzerne, laurier rose, chêne, érable, etc). Elle conduit à des dépérissements massifs de certaines espèces d’intérêt économique (agrumes, vigne, oliviers). Il n’existe pas de méthode de lutte directe contre la bactérie. Une fois contaminés, seul l’arrachage total des végétaux permet d’éradiquer la maladie.

Le pathogène est présent dans plusieurs pays-tiers, notamment le continent américain et a été importé dans le Sud de l’Italie (plusieurs foyers signalés dans la région des Pouilles). Actuellement, aucun foyer n’a été détecté en France. Un arrêté a été signé le 03/04/2015 afin d’interdire l’importation en France de végétaux sensibles à Xyllela fastidiosa et provenant de zones touchées par la bactérie Cette interdiction concerne les échanges intra-européens depuis la région des Pouilles et les importations issues des zones infectées des pays tiers concernés. Elle sera assortie du renforcement du plan de contrôle et de surveillance sur l’ensemble du territoire national.

La Russie menace d'interdire les fruits de Serbie

La Serbie qui a augmenté ses exportations de pommes vers la Russie de +48% en quelque mois est fortement soupçonnée les autorités russes de faire du ré-export.
 
Rosselkhoznadzor, l'agence sanitaire russe, s'interroge à propos des exportations de pommes serbes. La Serbie a exporté 118 000 tonnes de pommes vers la Russie soit une hausse des volumes de +48%.
 
L'agence russe soupçonne que les pommes "serbes" soient en réalité des pommes polonaises ré-exportées. Les russes ont demandé des explications aux autorités serbes qui disposent d'une dizaine de jours pour fournir des réponses. 
 
Passé ce délai et sans explications satisfaisantes, selon l'agence RIA Novesti, la Russie pourrait interdire toutes les importations de fruits en provenance de Serbie.

La sécheresse en Californie a des conséquences au Canada

Le Canada qui est le le pays qui importe le plus d’aliments par habitant au monde subit aussi les conséquences de la  sécheresse en Californie.
 
Les consommateurs canadiens, comme leurs voisins américains dépendent de la Californie pour les fruits et les légumes frais, surtout en hiver. Les prix de plusieurs produits (brocoli, céleri, amande, carotte, fraise, chou, raisin) ont vu leur prix augmenter de plus de 10%.
 
Parmi les causes évoquées de cette montée des prix : tout d'abord la sécheresse qui sévit en Californie qui limite la production et fait mécaniquement monter les prix, puis la baisse du dollar canadien. Les monnaies, avant à parité, s'échangent maintenant au taux de 1 USD pour 0,80 $ canadien.
 
Cette situation pourrait inciter les distributeurs canadiens à se tourner vers d'autres sources d'approvisionnement et de nouveaux marchés.

FreshFruitPortal.com » Citrus black spot in Europe would be ‘catastrophic’, says Copa Cogeca

The head of EU agricultural organization Copa Cogeca is calling for more to be done to combat the dangers of citrus black spot disease spreading into Europe from South Africa, saying “we cannot take the risk”.


Copa Cogeca general secretary Pekka Pesonen

General secretary Pekka Pesonen has written to the European Commission stressing that recommendations made by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) warn the Commission should not underestimate the high risk of contamination in the continent’s groves via imports.

“Black spot is a disease that is not present in Europe and its presence could have disastrous consequences on the citrus sector in producer countries,” Pesonen says in a release.

“The EU citrus fruit sector is crucial both from an economic and social point of view. It provides the EU with high quality produce, at the same time as ensuring employment for millions of people in EU rural areas, both upstream and downstream, especially in southern countries.

“We cannot take the risk of importing the disease. The impact would be catastrophic for EU citrus fruit producers, particularly as southern countries are already being badly hit by the severe economic crisis.”

Pesonen’s warning comes just as the new import season for citrus from South Africa begins and includes a call for the EU to establish greater phytosanitary controls at ports.

“Given the South African sector’s attitude and the experience gained in 2013 and 2014 when 35 and 28 interceptions respectively were recorded, the EU should take new measures and enforce its Implementing Decision from 2nd July 2014, to establish greater phytosanitary controls at ports of entry and especially where the main imports come into the EU – the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

“An article should be set up in EU law to enable the EU to decide automatically to shut its border on a precautionary basis to imports when there is a high risk.

“This is a European phytosanitary problem, which requires a strong protection strategy that is coordinated from Brussels.”

FreshFruitPortal.com » Russia: Putin disappoints on Greek import speculation

Hopes were high after a Russian minister said protocols were prepared to lift the ban on Greek food imports, but speculation came to a grinding halt this afternoon following statements made by the two countries’ leaders.

During a press conference in Moscow, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said Greece would act as a sovereign country with a right to pursue its own interests, but Russian President Vladimir Putin said no exceptions would be made for lifting the food import ban for any EU country.

Putin lamented the impacts of Russia’s counter-sanctions on the Greek agriculture sector, but said “it is not our fault”.

“We simply could not do otherwise, and we can not make an exception for any one country of the European Union,” Putin said.

Nonetheless, Tsipras emphasized the counter-sanctions imposed by Russia had “inflicted pain on the Greek economy”.

“But we know the retaliations were a response to sanctions [against Russia], the logic of which we do not entirely share,” Tsipras said.

“We openly disapproved of the sanctions. It is not an efficient solution. We think it could bring about a new Cold War between Russia and the West.”

In an email, Incofruit-Hellas president George Frangistas told www.freshfruitportal.com he hoped the EU would not pursue any further sanctions, so that the Russian embargo would simply “expire on its own” on July 31.

“On the other hand as EU producers we would have liked the EU to be less inclined to sign free trade agreements with third countries,” Frangistas said.

“We are not against free trade and do not request trade barriers. On the contrary we expect a level playing field but if a third country expects access to the EU market than it should reciprocate.

“Had the EU implemented such a policy we would not have felt the repercussions of the Russian embargo so severely.”

He said the Russian market was extremely important for fruits like strawberries, peaches and nectarines as it represented more than 30% of volumes, while for other products like cherries and kiwifruit it was not as critical but still important.

“The closure of the Russian market is not only a severe loss in terms of market but also crucially it creates an oversupply which permeates the entire sector resulting in prices drops across Europe regardless of product,” he said.

“Until 31.7.15 Greece stands to lose and estimated 95-100 thousand tons of fresh fruit valued at €75-80 million.”

The Greek fruit industry leader discussed a few other factors that had impacted ties with the Russian produce market.

“The Ruble has clearly nose-dived in the past couple of months. Meanwhile the Euro has also dropped against the USD and the Ruble has somewhat stabilized,” he said.

“Should the Russian market re-open today I would expect the currency situation to be partially compensated albeit definitely at a lower level than last summer.

“There is another factor against us:  the embargo has forced Russian importers to find alternatives to EU fruit. This implies new trade channels have been forged. Once the embargo is lifted I expect it will take a few years to regain our past market share.”

In terms of Greece’s summer crops, Frangistas said they seemed to be developing smoothly with normal-to-high volumes expected.

“The latest rains and relatively low temperatures may imply some delays for some products in some areas but at this point we have no concrete issues to report.”

Asperge Espagne : des pertes jusqu’à -20% à Grenade

Les basses températures enregistrées au mois de mars dans la zone de Grenade ont causé la perte d’environ 20 % de la production d’asperges dans cette zone soit environ 8 000 t d’après l’Union de Jeunes Agriculteurs (UPA) de Grenade.
Les basses températures enregistrées durant une grande partie du mois de mars avaient déjà différé la production mais le gel de la fin mars a empêché les producteurs de récolter et endommagé la production. Le manque à gagner est d’autant plus important que l’offre a été quasi-nulle pour les fêtes de Pâques.

FreshFruitPortal.com » Chilean kiwifruit leader accuses Zespri of anti-competitive behavior

New Zealand kiwifruit marketer Zespri vowed to change its business practices in South Korea after it was fined for monopolistic behavior in 2011, but a Chilean industry representative alleges the group has since “regressed” in matters of fair competition in many Asian and European markets.

Speaking with www.freshfruitportal.com, Chilean Kiwifruit Committee president Carlos Cruzat said not only was Zespri acting very aggressively in foreign markets, but had deviated from its spirit of a conservative, grower-owned company.

“Chile feels uncomfortable with the way in which New Zealand takes on the competition in markets, and this is negative for free trade and cooperation,” he said.

“They have a very strong position in Asia, where it’s very aggressive and increasingly cautious. In Europe it’s more aggressive at the supermarket chain level, focusing on some chains, and wherever Chile starts having a firmer position coincidentally there is a very aggressive action coming from Zespri.

“What I’d share about Zespri is that while it’s a company with many virtues, prudence is not one of them.”

Cruzat said strict policies on free trade and competition meant similar behavior was not seen in the U.S., while he had not seen the trend in Latin America either.

At www.freshfruitportal.com, we were at the forefront of covering Zespri’s actions in South Korea before the marketer was fined for securing exclusive contracts with E-Mart and Lotte Mart that cut Chilean fruit out of the market. At the moment, Cruzat and his compatriots are working with authorities in different countries for similar cases, but the executive does not wish to reveal exactly where just yet.

While acknowledging it was not a matter on which members of the Chilean industry could have an opinion, his reading of Zespri’s recent buyer visit controversy was that it showed the firm was “distancing” itself from its status of a state-backed marketer representing the interests of New Zealand growers.

“A private company has policies for its ties with clients, and perhaps the amount [of spending] involved isn’t so significant in a company that has one owner or a small group of shareholders, but what Zespri represents is the spirit of New Zealand growers, channeling their product for trade,” he said.

“I think the complaint there is that the conservative spirit or tradition of New Zealand growers has in some way been violated…they distance themselves from who are the owners of the company – the growers; it reflects more the commercial hunger of the board that directs Zespri.

“Any grower that gets a good return will be happy with it, so here the problem is not necessarily with the amounts but the way the company carries out its style. It’s effectively the same as what happens in markets, that the company distances itself from the traditional way of good competition, healthy competition.”

In response to Cruzat’s claims, Zespri chief operating officer Simon Limmer issued a statement.

“From our perspective, we have a good relationship with Chilean growers and the Chilean Kiwifruit Committee,” Limmer said.

“We meet regularly to discuss both the kiwifruit industry and how to develop the category, as well as collaborating proactively on Psa research.

“However we both acknowledge we work in a competitive environment and we’re defined by that market reality.”

Chilean kiwifruit production outlook

During a seminar held last month, Cruzat said Chile would have about 20% fewer green Hayward kiwifruit than a normal year, reaching around 160,000 metric tons (MT). The leader attributed the lower production to frosts in both 2013 and 2014, and lower flowering which affects fruit size.

In terms of other varieties, Cruzat estimated production would be around 8,000MT, in a season where parameters were set for minimum brix levels of 5.5 and dry matter of 15.5% at harvest.

Speaking with www.freshfruitportal.com, Cruzat said around 4,000-5,000MT of the ‘other varieties’ would be gold kiwifruit, which have proven more susceptible to the disease Psa.

“The gold kiwifruit that have been in the VII (Maule) region have been more affected, and there are orchards that are losing production, and there are orchards that have been taken out.

“Today we don’t have a tolerant [gold] variety in Chile…we continue to work on new varieties and are also doing a project with the Universidad de Chile and Udine University, testing new materials.

“There are certain geographical zones where we don’t think the influence will be so significant, and once the growers learn to manage gold kiwifruit better we’ll probably have some of them with good results.”

He said that with 160 orchards infected, around 15% of Chile’s kiwifruit-growing surface area has been affected by Psa.

“Although Psa will travel freely in the whole country wherever it enters, because it has the capacity to pass through all the controls and all the human actions we can make, the way it arrives determines whether it’s a disaster for the industry or a  disease that’s under control.

“We believe that in Chile we’ve had the fortunate of having good coordination with the government, and for the growers in general it has not been a catastrophe that means a permanent cost in the orchards that we have.”

Russian ban to shape global kiwifruit trade dynamics

Aside from the increase in New Zealand kiwifruit this year, and a greater amount of Chilean fruit at least compared to 2014, Cruzat said the Russian ban on EU food imports would have flow-on effects to Chile’s 2015 campaign.

“The Russian embargo meant that the Greek kiwifruit, which were usually sold in great proportion in Russia, quickly started to be sold in Europe, which meant the start of the European kiwifruit season was very tough,” he said.

“It is expected there will be an abundant stock of kiwifruit until May; this puts pressure on so that the arrival of Chilean kiwifruit should be as late as possible to not touch the Italian kiwifruit that’s been in storage.

“On the other hand, within Russia the financial situation of many Russians is not very good, and the exchange rates in Russia and Europe have devaluated, so they don’t have a lot of purchasing power for Chilean kiwifruit.”

He said these dynamics would have varying effects over the course of the season, which could roughly be divided into three parts.

“The last period is for the long-storage fruit which is generally for Latin America and some countries away from the direct impact of the European situation. Normally we can arrive late in the season in Russia when European fruit hasn’t arrived yet – normally the first European fruit is sold in Europe.

“I think this year the later fruit will be as per normal. For the mid-season fruit it’ll be more interesting as we’ll be able to do a good campaign because the accumulation of European fruit will have cleared.

“The early fruit will effectively be more complex because there’ll be Italian stock still going around in Europe and the United States. Chile will probably in the first stage try to prioritize the United States, Latin America and China, leaving space so that Europe clears. This predilection for certain markets could generate oversupply and the markets could be slow.”

NZ - Retour aux volumes de production d'avant le virus PSA

Dès cette année le secteur kiwi prévoit de retrouver les niveaux avant le virus PSA.
 
Le virus PSA a décimé un bon nombre de vergers plantés en variété Gold "Hort16A" et aussi endommagé l'hybride "Haywards". En tout plus d'un tiers des vergers de kiwis ont été touchés, portant un coup de frein brutal au secteur.
 
Depuis, la stratégie de remplacer les "Hort16A" par les nouveaux "Gold3", résistants au virus PSA et plus  productifs (+30%) a permis un revirement remarquable.
 
Pour 2014-15 il est attendu 30 millions de plateaux de kiwis Gold (dont 25 millions seront issus des "Gold3") dépassant le record précédent de 29 millions de plateaux vendus dans la saison 2011.

FreshFruitPortal.com » Chile: Fruit fly found in Valparaiso region

In a matter of weeks after a Mediterranean fruit fly was detected in Coquimbo, another key Chilean fruit-growing region has registered an outbreak of the pest.

Growers are taking the matter very seriously, but fortunately both outbreaks have occurred in urban areas.

Website Mercuriovalpo.cl reported that on Tuesday the country’s Agriculture and Livestock Service (SAG) trapped two specimens of the fly in San Esteban, which lies in the Los Andes province of the Valparaiso region.

SAG regional director Francisca Herrera said the agency was placing a great number of traps in the area, and had beefed up controls at border crossings.

In a release, Los Andes Farmers Association president Verónica Arritola called on the community to help protect Chile’s plant heritage by preventing the pest’s spread.

“As you know the protocol for this detection considers a quarantine radius of 7.2km, and required treatments will start to be implemented for every destination country, as well as eradication measures,” she said.

In response to the Coquimbo detection, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine of the People’s Republic of China (AQSIQ) announced all fruit from that region would have to be given in-transit cold treatment if it were to be exported to China. However, once Chinese inspectors arrive in Chile there is the possibility the quarantine area will be reduced.
