Kees van den Bosch of Freeland:
Netherlands: “Mostly iceberg lettuce, cauliflower and leeks going to Southern Europe”
Freeland and Peakfresh share a stand at Fruit Attraction
“Both Italy and Spain have purchased a lot of iceberg,” says Kees. “The Spanish are fond of large sizes; with fruit, but also with vegetables, and that means selling a lot of iceberg. The Spanish tend to buy in large quantities, as opposed to – for instance – Scandinavians, who only buy what they need.”
Freeland itself takes in Spanish produce in the winter months, says Kees.
