Jan Bakker (Bakker AGF) talks about field vegetable trade

"Red cabbage shortage pushes prices to 45-50 cents"

The open field vegetable trade is doing well at the moment, "The kilograms that were hoped for have not been harvested, in particular in Eastern Europe, and there is also talk of a good level of demand coming from our Eastern neighbors," says Jan Bakker from Bakker export wholesaler in Bovenkarspel, Netherlands. Bakker AGF offers a total package, but they specialize in large vegetables like cabbage, carrots, beets, cauliflower, potatoes and onions. The wholesaler mainly supplies to processing companies, catering wholesalers, exporters and supermarkets, and is exporting more and more to the German market. 

"Growers and traders are now able to earn some money again. There is very little red cabbage, right now the price is at 45-50 cents. We will have to wait until the demand for white cabbage really increases. The white cabbage is going for 20-25 cents right now. Carrots are going for 25-30 cents, and many onions are selling for 25-30 cents. The price of beets is a bit lower, at 20-25 cents, but that is not bad at all. It is still fairly early in the season, but the outlook for the rest of the season is positive," says Jan.
