Supply from Spain lagging behind; supply available from Israel
Importers expect better prices for peppers

Prices for peppers from both Spain and Israel are not very high at present, but importers expect somewhat higher prices towards next week. “The supply of Dutch peppers is finished, the Spanish supply, because of the cold weather, is lagging behind, but demand for peppers from Israel I find disappointing, althought the supply is sufficient” Henri Schockman of Levarht tells.

Frank Mosterd of Gilad Products expects a larger supply of Israeli peppers next week. “As a result of the different qualities on the Israeli market prices for red and yellow peppers vary between 4 and 6,50 euro at the moment. We are close to
X-mas and therefore I am rather optimistic regarding the development of the market towards next week”.
