Bulk Food Ingredient Supplier of Frozen BlackberriesDate: April 5, 2024

A wet winter in Chile resulted in various farm areas experiencing flooding that has reduced production, and may also be responsible for the presence of worms from fruit flies in the Chilean harvest. This keeps prices consistently high across the market for blackberries. As the “worm issue” mirrors a similar occurrence in Serbia with blackberries where worms have left buys unwilling to purchase product with worms. Consequently, processors have been compelled to implement rigorous quality checks on raw materials.

Due to limited supply, Chilean processors find themselves unable to reduce prices for wild blackberries. However, a growing number of market participants are transitioning to cultivated blackberries whenever possible due to their lower costs and the heightened safety and quality standards in place.
