British glasshouse season coming to an end

The season for British grown greenhouse vegetables has officially come to an end now that all of the major UK retailers are offering either Dutch, Moroccan or Spanish bell peppers, tomatoes and cucumbers.

According to the latest data provided by market intelligence service Produce View, Marks & Spencer is currently the only retailer to offer the last UK produce; they still have some British grown cherry tomatoes on their shelves. Lidl, Aldi, Waitrose, Co-op, Morrisons and Tesco offered Spanish cherry tomatoes, while Asda and Sainsbury's brought in Moroccan cherry tomatoes.

Spain is also a dominant supplier of cucumbers this week; Lidl, Aldi, Waitrose, M&S, Co-op, Morrisons and Tesco offer Spanish cucumbers this week. Dutch cucumbers can be found at Sainsbury's and Asda is buying them from Morocco this week.

The Spanish growers have also taken over the bell pepper supply, and are only experiencing a bit of competition from Dutch producers at Tesco, Sainsbury's and M&S.
