This year Greek peach canners face "not one but two mountains" of raw material to process when the pack starts in about two weeks' time. Packers have yet to talk about pricing to importers nor have they fixed a price for fruit with the growers. While farmers will hold out for the EU guaranteed minimum prices, if they have their backs against a mountain of unsold fruit, such guarantees may not carry the day. There is a chance this year that surpluses may have to be destroyed to qualify for EU aid. "In the long term, the Greeks need to organise access to the European fresh fruit market,"said one trader. The Greek minimum wage has risen, as have the prices of diesel and freight, which will offset the advances sterling may have made against the Greek drachma. {{PROVISIONS }}
