Bulgaria: Stone Fruit Annual

Post forecasts that Bulgaria’s stone fruit crop in marketing year (MY) 2017 will increase due to favorable weather, improved average yields, and orchard expansion supported by EU subsidy programs. This increase will lead to more processing and fresh consumption, particularly following a decline last year due to lower production and quality issues. Stone fruit imports will experience steady growth, driven by higher incomes and consumer demand for healthful products. Bulgarian fresh stone fruit exports will likely be flat, although processed-product exports will continue to increase.
