UK free-buy trade slow as snow keeps consumers at home

UK free-buy trade has been reportedly slow this week, as snow keeps consumers at home. The packing sector remains to be the most dominant sector, as opportunities to eat out-of-home are still curbed.

The UK packing trade remains to be fulfilled mostly on contract this week. Maris Piper is still seen to be the consumer’s favoured variety as the high-end prices’ firm week-on-week, gaining £10/t in England and £20/t in Scotland.

Some reports of the sector starting to feel a little downward pressure on price are surfacing, though prices remain relatively unmoved week-on-week.
