Dirk van Nieuwkerk, Anaco Greeve:

"Growers can't complain with the current tomato prices"

The switch from the Dutch to the Spanish tomato season is going very well according to Dirk van Nieuwkerk of Anaco Greeve. "A number of Dutch growers are already finished, others will run out this week or next. Spain is starting slightly later and this means no one is in each others way. All in all a good situation for Dutch horticulture."

"The prices are at a reasonable level, and this has been the case for a longer period. I believe the growers can't complain at the moment, although it's the nature of the beast I suppose. The current prices, however, should be satisfactory. Really good B-tomatoes are sold for 5.50 - 6 Euro, the difference in A tomatoes (2-4.50) is more extreme. The prices of the small sizes have also been considerably good for a while."
