An annual growth was observed compared to previous years, with the exception of 2014, when sales decreased by 1.4% compared to 2013 The fall in the indicator was due to the poor harvest of apples in some large producing countries, primarily in China and Turkey, which led to a shortage of products on the market and, as a result, price increases.
