The impact of inflation on fresh fruit and vegetable prices

07 April 2022 Nick Edwards

Supply chain problems and inflation are affecting virtually every commodity at every level. Fresh produce, fruit and vegetable prices have risen at different rates, due to a combination of factors, including:

  • Higher input costs such as energy, packaging, and fertilisers
  • Labour shortages
  • Shipping issues due to surging freight costs and delays
  • Strong consumer demand of high-quality of food
  • Changing consumer buying practices such as online purchase and home delivery

The global price landscape of fresh fruit and vegetables is more volatile than ever, placing even more pressure on food retailers and procurement teams. We do not anticipate a return to "normal" seasonal patterns until 2023.

Our new white paper, Analysis: Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Prices Inflation, contains data and analysis that helps sheds light on the pricing outlook for fresh produce, along with our expectations for the future. It looks at the ongoing cost and inflation picture for selected fresh fruit and vegetable categories: apples, bananas, oranges, lettuce, and potatoes.
