South Korea: 2021 Korea Apple Update

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   KS2021-0029

In the current marketing year running from July 2021 to June 2022, Korea’s fresh apple production and consumption are projected to rise by 13 percent after several years of gradual decline. Korea’s apple production areas continue to shift further north and to higher elevations due to changing climate conditions. Korean phytosanitary regulations do not allow fresh apple imports, so the market is dominated by relatively high-cost domestic production and limited varieties.
