Netherlands: Good year for shallots?

The shallot season has been underway for some weeks now. The shallots are stored and ready for trade. In some periods of the season though, the decision is made to interject deliberate lulls, a decision depending on the quality and shelf life of produce. Also of influence are demand, supply and price levels. Around the holidays demands are usually up.

Within the EU, prices are mostly set in Bretagne, France, but other regions are getting a word in as well. At the end of the storage season the price is set per region, as supplies start decreasing in individual regions.

What will happen in the coming season is hard to tell. It’s still early in the season, but demand is already high. Bretagne is low on qualitative supplies right now, possibly affecting price levels. Whether or not these recent developments will depress prices is pure conjecture.
