According to Frank, who is both active in growing and in selling leeks, a lot of leeks went to the United Kingdom, which had a lot of rain damage. "Also Scandinavia bought a lot. The Dutch supply was, according to the man from Brabant, a lot less for a period, but is increasing now. The quality of the leeks is first class, according to Frank.
"The Autumn cultivation during the last years was not profitable and therefore the area decreased considerably. "When adding the unexpected large demand from the United Kingdom to this the market situation looks a lot better immediately," the grower concludes.
