Cold weather spells misery for pineapple farmers

Tuesday, February 24, 2015

Rainfall and low temperatures in the north and the Caribbean are slowing down the pace of the pineapple harvest in Costa Rica.

A drop in shipments has caused a significant increase in prices in the European market. According to Alexander, the wholesale price per 11 kilo box has risen to 13 Euro for the larger calibres, an increase of between 50 and 60 percent.
