Poland: Spring frost brought down the blueberry market.
In summer, Poland had frost affecting 30-40% of the early blueberry varieties. The demand was very slow at the start of the season, but gradually picked up. The price of Polish blueberries has been higher this year due to the weather and the pandemic. The production costs are higher than for most other fruits and, moreover, Poland had difficulties with the finding of laborers this year, as the pandemic made it difficult for workers from Ukraine to travel to work in Poland. Polish blueberries are sold all over the world, but European countries, as well as the Middle East and Asian countries, remain the main markets for them.
