With produce travelling from all corners of the globe there is always something you should stay away from.
This page is designed to ensure you don’t get caught out by listing something on your menu when supply is proving slightly tricky.
Fresh produce revolves around the climate so changes happen frequently, make sure you come back every week to find out what will be difficult during the coming week.
How Freaky | Is Our Praying Mantis This Week???
The days of plump and beautiful figs are over for a while as the Turkish season is quickly declining.
It will be a few weeks until Brazil starts its production so watch out as they may not be availble during the back end of this week.
Tomatoes Yellow & Vine
WATCH OUT as the price has gone galactic in fact its rocketed so high we have stopped purchasing them until things get back on track.
Vine tomatoes in both plum and round formats have come to an end due to a seasonal change we are now sourcing loose options.
The quality is still amazing but they will no longer be on the vine for a period.
A switch in the season means that the little gem will be moving offshore shortly as the season moves over to Spain.
The last of the UK season is showing signs of rusting so once Spain is ready we will be heading over there for supply
This time of year is critical for the most overused and often forgotten about crop we grow in the UK.
Potatoes are used on most things and over the years there is no doubt it has turned into a commodity crop that we all just expect to be available in good supply and quality at all times.
We have all been aware of the severe heat we have faced and the impending issue with crops that are still in the ground due to lack of water.
We will be doing an indepth piece on the potato forcast over the coming week but of late we have been receiving warnings from potato growers and processors across the land warning of a troublsome season ahead.
Early lifts of the crop are showing signs of lack of large graded potatoes which are used for bakers, chips etc along with reduced yields. Just take a look at the words flowing from Koffman’s!!!!
There isn't a shortage just now but please be warned as this coming 18/19 season could be extremely troublesome for our trusty tuber as the rest of the crop is lifted and inspected.
