He indicates that Spain was on the market a few weeks later this autumn, due to technical cultivation problems. "Our growers profited from this. In previous years there was almost always a weak price formation in October and now they have remained at a considerable level. The red ones for instance are being sold for around 1.80 Euro at the moment. That's a tidy price."
Looking back at the season Bruna notices that there were mainly very high prices at the start. "There was also less supply then and this coincided with promotional deals in Germany. This pushed the price up. We aren't celebrating yet, but it hasn't been a bad season for peppers. A good season was sorely needed. Recent years have regularly been tear inducing." The pointed pepper also did well. "The market for this variety is more stable than the regular pepper. The price didn't sink this season, a phenomenon seen in other seasons with supply peaks."
