The production of raspberries is of great
importance for the development of the agroindustrial complex. Its products are used for
direct consumption or as raw materials in the
food industry. The demand for fruit on the world
market has increased significantly, especially
for small (fine) fruits (cherries, raspberries,
currants), frozen and canned fruit. Fruit growing
participates with about 3% of the agricultural
GDP in Republic of North Macedonia. Rich
yield, unlimited sales, high purchase prices and
European earnings make growing raspberries a
profitable agribusiness.
The purpose of the research in this paper is to
understand the situation on the world market of
raspberries and how that situation affects the
market in the Republic of North Macedonia.
The aim is to analyze the import and export of
raspberries in the world and the world's largest
exporters and importers of raspberries are
analyzed. All this contributes to the perception
of the impact of world raspberry trade on
production opportunities and raspberry
cultivation in the Republic of North Macedonia.
Therefore, this paper, in addition to world data
of raspberries production, also presents the
volume and value of frozen berry exports from
the Republic of North Macedonia in the period
2015-2019, as well as foreign trade balance
(import-export) in the country. Foreign trade
balance (import-export) in Republic of North
Macedonia indicates that in 2019 there is a
positive foreign trade balance (import-export),
which is higher by 56% compared to 2015. This
means that the production of berries is a promising agricultural branch that has positive
effects on the country's foreign trade balance.
