Currently, the supply of tomatoes is great. The focus is on imports from the Netherlands. Prices at the German wholesale markets are still quite stable, but a rise could be imminent.
There is a wide range of different origins visible at German wholesale markets. In addition to produce from the Benelux and Spain, supplies from Morocco and Turkey are present as well. In the case of TOVs, the main focus is still on Dutch goods. In week 46, Dutch TOVs were sold at prices of around €1.63 /kg at the German wholesale markets.
Demand for TOVs picked up significantly last week. Nevertheless, the share of households buying these remained almost 10% below the average of the past five years. Yet, at the consumer level, TOVs were nearly 7% cheaper than last year. TOVs from conventional production are advertised at prices between €1.69 and €1.99/kg. For regional produce from Germany, the promotional price is €3.06/kg. Organic TOVs are advertised at prices between €2.00 and €2.98 /kg
