Cauliflower supply up and down due to weather

The English cauliflower season has been good so far but cold weather throughout April had meant a slight decline in volumes.

“Demand has been good,” said Shane Talling from Veg-UK. “This combined with limited supply means prices have been strong. Overall supply is a bit up and down at the moment due to the changeable weather.”

Last week saw rain and warm weather which has boosted the sizes, but a gap in the supply is anticipated before the summer crop comes online.

“Some growers are keeping cauliflowers in storage to try cover this. Which will influence prices in the coming weeks. Looking forward to the summer crop in 4 -5 weeks’ time we are looking at exporting again to customers in Germany, Italy, and Scandinavia.”
