"Tomatoes still strikingly good of quality and price"
Belgian vegetable trade quiet
Not much interest
"Also for other vegetables, such as lettuce and carrots, there is not much interest. Possibly the corn salad will be a little more expensive shortly. There is actually no exception and everybody still has left overs, which are to be finished first. Also there is always more production of lettuce in Italy and France and I am under the impression that these countries occupy a large part of the market."
Quality and price of tomatoes good
Tomatoes are still available. "This year it took longer than other years and I have been surprised a few times that the quality is still that good. It is the middle of December now and so far this year I have seen a lot worse than the ones we are receiving now. Volumes are not large, but still nice for trading with. For growers it is too late to do well, but good prices are still being made. The level of the price of loose tomatoes today was about 1.30 and yesterday 1.40 to 1.60/kg. I wonder how the Belgian area will develop. Something will have to change, because this situation is unmanageable for everybody."
