MADISON. While the cranberry crop is lower in some North American growing states due to adverse weather conditions, it remains average in other areas. The market situation appears stable for the rest of the year.

Lower crop in Quebec

As Chelmer Foods states in its latest report, after a good crop in 2022, things are looking much worse in Canada this year. The cold weather has continued after the winter, especially in the province of Quebec, and is likely to lead to a significant drop in yields. In addition, the plants need a recovery period after the large crop last year.

From the USA, growers in Wisconsin also report adverse weather conditions. A great heat was followed by periods of frost, which led to damage to the buds. Here, too, in the largest cranberry-growing state in the world, this resulted in lower yields. Things look a little better in Massachusetts, where an average season is expected.

Good demand

Overall, the North American cranberry market is expected to be stable in 2023. Chelmer Foods states that Fruit D'Or, among others the world market leader in growing organic cranberries, still has sufficiently high stocks to meet the demand of customers in the conventional and organic sectors. If demand does not change to an unusual extent, prices should remain stable or increase slightly this year. Currently, buying interest is high as cranberries are used in a variety of products.
