Norwegian producers of raspberries believe that the retail price is higher than desired. So far this year, sales are going slower than expected.
“The turnover of raspberries is lower than expected, and a lot of the raspberries have to go to warehouses before they go out to the store systems,” the Norwegian Directorate of Agriculture wrote in its weekly market update.
They further noted that the manufacturers believe the retail price is too high.
Between 800 and 900 tonnes of Norwegian raspberries are usually sold each year.
There is also a lower turnover of most vegetables and potatoes during the summer holidays, which is normal at this time of year.
A search in Meny’s online shop on Sunday evening shows that a cup with 300 grams of Norwegian raspberries is sold for NOK 49.90. At Oda, the price is NOK 65.90.
