MADISON/OTTAWA. After two years with comparatively low production results, the forecasts for the availability of dried cranberries for the coming season are significantly better now. Meanwhile, prices on the European spot market show little change.

More cranberries in 2021

Due to below-average crop volumes, fewer cranberries were available in 2019/2020 and 2020/2021. Accordingly, stocks of frozen berries and raw materials needed for the production of sweetened and dried cranberries were lower. However, according to data from the International Nut and Dried Fruit Council (INC), market players are confident that supplies should be sufficient in the coming season even as demand increases.

The USA, Canada and Chile are expected to produce a total of 218,379 mt of dried cranberries, almost 9% more
