Theo Kampschoer, Kampexport:

“Difficult start to Breton cauliflower season”

The start of the French cauliflower season is difficult this year, according to vegetable exporter Theo Kampschoer from Brittany. “Because of the warm weather, the growers from the Netherlands and Belgium are still harvesting, so a lot of cauliflower is available in Northern Europe. The advantage is that Spain and Italy are hardly on the market.”

In Brittany, the cauliflower area is six per cent smaller this year. Theo expects a a daily supply of 60,000 to 70,000 crates of ‘sixes,’ depending on the weather of course. “Right now prices are fluctuating between 5.50 and 7.50 euro.”

Kampexport mainly supplies cauliflower to Italy, Germany and the domestic French market now, and this is supplemented with export to Spain and Eastern European countries such as the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary and Bulgaria.

According to the trader, planting of specialities such as colourful cauliflower and romanesco is still very limited in Brittany. “About 1,000 to 3,000 crates (6/8) of romanesco are supplied every day. Additionally, some green cauliflower is available, and to a lesser extent, yellow and orange cauliflower as well.”
