2024 Survey into production/shipping costs and selling prices

The Global Coalition of Fresh Produce brings together fresh produce associations from around the world, based on their joint vision to create resilient global value chains for fruits and vegetables that bring a myriad of economic, environmental, and societal benefits. The Coalition’s mission is to voice solutions to address disruptions in global supply chains for fresh produce, including – but not limited to – rising costs, and share and promote best practices.
In 2023, as producers and traders the world over were facing unprecedented cost hikes, the Coalition conducted a survey into the impact of these hikes on our industry. The results of this survey are available on our website at https://producecoalition.net/wp-content/uploads/2023/09/Producer-Costs-and-Prices-Report.pdf.
Now, we are repeating our global survey to understand how the situation has evolved over the past year. The new data will support the development of global and national perspectives on the evolving impacts of production and trading costs in the following regions: Canada, the USA, Europe, Africa, New Zealand, Australia and South America.
Please take a moment to complete this short survey to support our efforts to frame and understand the challenges our sector is experiencing today.
