There will also be a weekly meeting to monitor the current situation. "It's nessecary that the EU supports the sectors which got the hardest hit by the boycott," says Dijksma, the Dutch Secretary of State, on Twitter.
The Dutch horticulture companies are in really bad weather. According to the greenhouse industry spokes person Nico van Ruiten, for 500 horticulture companies this boycott can be the knockout punch. It's just a matter of weeks before these companies can no longer sustain. Bell pepper grower Jos Enthoven acknowledges that. "My nursery can endure this situation for like 10, 12 weeks. If the situation doesn't improve, it's over."
