First Egyptian supply at Masr Fruit

UK: High prices for spring onions

The UK market is short of spring onions, this is due to storms last week which effectively put an end to the Dutch and German supplies, the English season also ended early leaving the market pretty empty.

"This has put the focus on the Egyptian crop," said Zine Zouggari from Masr Fruit's UK office. "We will receive the first container of spring onions from Egypt today, coming in at Felixstowe, next week will see more containers arriving."

Zouggari said that normally arrivals from Egypt would start mid November, but have been pushed forward due the the short supply from elsewhere. He said prices would be much higher than normal until the middle of next week when bigger volumes start to arrive in the UK.
