INTERPERA, the international pear congress, is organised every other year by AREFLH and its partners.
The aim of the congress is to bring together producers and international stakeholders from the sector around technical and economic themes.
In June 2021 Interpera reported that Europe is expecting a significant drop in its pear production
The decline of the pear production in Europe for the coming season was one of the conclusions of the Interpera webinar, the international pear congress.
During today’s digital edition of the congress, AREFLH, the main organiser of the event, brought together 20 speakers from the 6 main producing countries in Europe: Italy, France, Belgium, Netherlands, Spain and Portugal. The data announced and detailed by the experts during the production session of the webinar, all indicate that Europe is expecting a significant drop in its pear production for the 2021 campaign. The widespread frosts in March and April will cause a fall in volumes in all production basins, with the exception of Portugal. For example, this drop is estimated at -50% for France and -30% for Belgium.
