Presence in the supermarket makes cabbage sprouts less interesting for the catering industry

'Demand for Flower Sprouts declining in recent years`

The Christmas season is over and January is traditionally a period of rest in the trade. Accordingly, the demand for sumptuous vegetable specialties has become somewhat less. Flower Sprouts - a colorful Dutch variety of cabbage shoots - is traditionally a little less in demand in January. After a promising start in the German wholesale trade a few years ago, demand has slowed somewhat in recent years, notes the responsible vegetable buyer at the Berlin gastronomy supplier Havelland Express GmbH.

Some years ago, Flower Sprouts were included in the assortment of the Berlin wholesale company. Although this particular winter product can still be sold quickly in the cold season, the sprouts have lost their importance as a commodity. "We have noticed that the demand for Flower Sprouts has declined somewhat in recent years. Among other things, because the product is now also present in the supermarkets."

Stable merchandise
From November to about February, the Brussels sprouts variety is offered in the assortment of Berliner GmbH. They are sold in 150-200 gram units or 1.5-3 kg increments, primarily to regional restaurateurs. Within the season, the market for flower sprouts has a certain continuity. "The availability remains relatively the same, as do the prices." There does not seem to be any further potential for the winter product at the moment.
