He indicates that the aubergine prices were very high until the beginning of last week. " But after that the prices dropped strongly. There was more production from the south of Spain. The production in Flanders is coming to an end, a few more weeks and it will be over. Today we were between 80 cents and 1.10 for aubergines yesterday, depending on the sorting. It's not extremely low, but it's a big difference compared to the start of last week. We were still between 1.70 and 1.80 due to a shortage then."
Reasonably normal overlap
It is a similar story for courgettes. "They have been expensive all week, but went down strongly yesterday, because Spain sent more. Last week the price was at 80/8 cents and that was quite high." The courgette season will also run for a few more weeks. "It also depends on the weather, a lot of courgettes are coming from the open ground at the moment." He says Spain isn't necessarily earlier this year. " I think the overlap is quite normal. Sometimes the prices rise before the production from south arrives, as is the case now. In general, we can't complain."
