Robert Vogel (AGF Direct) about open field vegetable shortages

"Dutch cauliflower selling for EUR 3 to EUR 3.50 apiece"

Cauliflower and broccoli are currently in short supply in the Netherlands. "We're constantly running behind," says Robert Vogel of AGF Direct. "The warm weather during planting delayed the cabbage setting. Now, the buckets of rain are further delaying the supply."

"This has been the case for about 14 days. Everyone's facing shortages; it's quite bad," continues the open-field vegetable seller. "Prices are currently sky-high. Cauliflower was even selling for €3 to €3.50 apiece, and broccoli for between €2 and €2.20 per kilo. But with the important caveat that these are often unavailable."

"Quality-wise, especially broccoli is starting to suffer. As a slightly more robust vegetable, cauliflower is doing a little better. We'll have to wait and see how the supply will develop. Growers are being very cautious. Time will tell if productions normalize or if the supply will remain irregular," Robert concludes.
