Downward trend in consumption
Apples remain the leading fruit consumed in France with nearly 90% of people buying them and purchases per household amounting to just over 16kg per year. In the fruit basket, it is ahead of bananas and oranges. However, it should be noted that for the past few years, the dynamics of purchasing is more favorable for bananas while for apples a regular decline in consumption has been recorded. In 2019, however, we observed a very slight rebound in quantities purchased.
