About This Report


The Fruit and Vegetable Wholesaling industry has endured difficult conditions over the past five years. The economic downturn constrained consumer spending, resulting in many people reducing their consumption of fruit and vegetables. In 2014, each person in the United Kingdom is estimated to have consumed on average four kilograms less fruit and vegetables than they did in 2010. Wholesalers have had to contend with sharply rising fruit and vegetable prices over the five-year period, which has reduced profitability, while supermarket power and the weak economy limited their ability to pass costs on to consumers.

This industry includes wholesalers of fresh and processed fruit and vegetables. Businesses purchase fruit and vegetables from farmers or growers and sell produce to retailers, such as greengrocers, supermarkets, farmers' markets and food-service industries. Wholesalers perform no additional processing beyond re-packaging but focus mainly on storage and distribution.

The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
