Warehouse Update 13/06/19

Please see below the following information gathered from the warehouse today.


***Please take note of shortages due to current weather conditions***


Broccoli & Cauliflowers – prices will rise again this week.

UK Asparagus – season will finish earlier this year (21st is usually the last day)

Sweet Potatoes – floods earlier in the season is now affecting the quantities arriving from the USA. As a result prices are likely to rise even more.

Savoy Cabbages – Spanish crop are short and English are not hearty enough to start supply.

Conference Pears – as we reach the end of the season, quality is struggling to maintain.
