Spanish blueberries are taking over from Chilean blueberries.
Despite the pandemic and strict restrictions around the world, the demand for blueberries remains high. The sale of South American blueberries (Argentina, Chile and Peru) is going very well; however, the volumes seem to be smaller this year. The last shipments of Chilean blueberries will arrive in Europe between the first and the second week of February, even though the South American season normally ends in early March. Only some small volumes of Peruvian blueberries will arrive in the last weeks of February. For its part, Spain has had snowstorms and frost in early January that will delay the production. Morocco is also having a slow start this year; therefore, blueberry volumes are expected to be very limited between the last two weeks of February and the first two weeks of March. From that moment on, the Spanish volumes will gradually increase.
