Produce Update 2017
Snow one day, rain the next – the weather in Europe is really effecting some of the baby leaf crop that we supply! Extreme weather conditions in Italy has had a negative effect on Rocket & Spinach, destroying much of the crop. The result of this is volatile prices and mixed quality – so we advise you only order what you plan to use on the day.
Similarly, excessive rain in Spain has damaged much of the baby leaf crop – including Iceberg, Little Gem, Cos & Romaine Lettuce. Quality and supply are suffering, so shelf life is expected to be compromised also. Spanish Peppers, Broccoli, Courgettes, Fennel and Lemons have also been badly effected by the rain, causing prices to rise steeply.
We’ll keep you up to date with any changes in quality & price over the forthcoming weeks, if you wish to discuss any of the above, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
