Richard Trevennen - Southern England Farms

“Cauliflower availability is now very strong and will continue to be so into April"

After a mixed start to the year the cauliflower supply from Cornwall it is back on track with good availability.

“We had strong orders in January covering for importers who through no fault of their own couldn’t get lorries into the country due to border issues. This was followed by a difficult February,” explains Richard Trevennen from Southern England Farms. “Availability is now very strong and will continue to be so into April. We are hoping that it stays cool in April to keep the demand strong.”

Richard said he has heard mixed reviews of the cauliflower crop from Lincolnshire where they had quite a tough winter, but there are certainly no shortages in overall supply.

SEF have restarted exporting cauliflower into Europe and Norway.

The company also a has good supply of spring greens and plenty of demand for it too.

“The product which is short is Savoy cabbage which is seeing good demand at the moment. The reason for the shortage is that demand has been low for the last 2-3 years so people planted less this year.

Richard doesn’t see demand going down when England comes out of lockdown towards the end of April, “People have become used to home cooking so I think this will continue.”

SEE are looking forward to the broccoli and courgette season which will start in May or June depending on the weather conditions.
