Finally good prices for Dutch pepper growers

After a few bad years, the prices of peppers are finally at a normal level this season. "The price is again slightly down because the supply has increased. Due to a very low production, the prices are reasonable now," says John van Marrewijk of Rainbow International. "There is a decent production, but sales are good. Market demand is also good."

The prices for colours have dropped slightly last week. "They are now reasonable," says John. "They alternate between normal and decent, I would say. The lower acreage combined with bad weather makes for lower production. There is less supply, so people tend to buy.” For the next week he expects a larger supply, but stable prices.

Notable customers include Poland and Russia. North America is also starting to buy. "They said we were far too expensive before. Now prices have dropped to a level that suits them better, because Dutch production has increased again." Earlier this season, the US market chose for Canadian and Mexican supply. "Mexico is a prize fighter, the Canadians also provide good quality," says Van Marrewijk. "Perhaps the production there is now lower."
