Fruit

This month we see the much anticipated and always welcome Blood Oranges.

In order to achieve their unique sweet flavour and the trademark red blush, Blood Oranges thrive on warmer days and cooler nights. This delightful product arrives initially from Sicily then swiftly followed by the Spanish varieties.

Please download the PDF report for more info.

Vegetables

As we highlighted last month, Potato stocks on a national scale, continue to get tighter.

We are already seeing signs of product commanding a higher price across the UK and also in the export market.

This is mainly affecting washed potatoes, bakers, mids and prepared products rather than our 25kilo ware potatoes (Maris Piper) so please keep this in mind when planning out menu costs.
