According to Martin Bolhuis of Tuindersbelang, in the Netherlands, cabbage sales are volatile. "We're moving reasonable volumes with 'bale trading' for the time of the year. But we're missing the industry. The world is currently full of uncertainty. That's always bad for confidence. We do trade all over Europe, and there are a few overseas sales. Volumes could be a bit higher, though. We'd prefer a more demanding market."
"Prices have been at the same level for some time. These are too low if you consider the cost price of, particularly, white cabbage. But there's nothing to be done at the moment. Last week, white 36'ers' prices fluctuated between €0.13 and €0.14. They were around €0.19 - €0.20 for the 60'ers. The red cabbage 36'ers were going for €0.19 to €0.20. And the 60'ers for between € 0.19 and €0.21, including packaging," concludes Martin.
