Zespri has increased its forecast SunGold kiwifruit returns to $11.05 per tray for the 2021-22 season, up from the $10.92 guided in August.
However, the kiwifruit co-op said shipping delays in North America would see Organic Green kiwifruit returns fall to $9.54 per tray, down from August’s $9.80. Organic SunGold’s forecast fell to $12.23 from $12.86.
“The decrease in forecast Organic SunGold Kiwifruit returns is driven predominantly by extensive shipping delays in North America that are likely to impact fruit quality, with this forecast factoring in a worst-case scenario for some shipments of North American fruit,” Zespri said.
Zespri Green held steady at $6.34.
