Increasing Demand for Organic Dried Apricots

Apricots are one of the least produced stone fruits and hence is considered a niche product. The global demand for organic apricots is constantly increasing. Consumers globally are looking for sustainable consumption and are looking for pesticide residue-free produce, especially when it comes to directly consumed food products. Certified organic apricots follow a different value chain compared to conventional apricots and organic apricots are directly sourced by processors from farms. Dried organic apricots are also increasingly consumed off-season. While the trade of fresh apricots peaks during summer and slack during winter months because of the seasonality of production, dried apricots have consistent demand over the year. The largest market globally for organic dried apricots is the United States.
