Dutch tomato exports break new records in 2009
Time:20 Jan 2010
Posted by

The Dutch tomato export will reach new records for 2009. All important export destinations, except Sweden, imported more tomatoes from Holland in 2009. Namely the exports to Germany, the UK and Italy have risen. The reason for the rise in exports is an increase in production in Holland and the resulting low prices. The most important sector in Dutch tomato growing and so the export, is the vine tomato.

German wholesale market prices for vine tomatoes

Rising retail prices

In the last weeks of 2009 an upwards trend is noticeable in the German wholesale price as well as the supermarket prices for vine tomatoes in Germany and in Holland.
The upward trend in prices is a result of a lessening supply: in Holland the supply is falling because most of the Dutch tomato growers are not producing at the moment, in Spain the bad weather as well as a reduction in acreage is playing a part.

Dutch tomatoes realise more than the Spanish

Dutch tomatoes always realise higher prices than Spanish on the German wholesale market. In general it is: the higher the price, the bigger the price difference between Dutch and Spanish tomatoes.

Dutch acreage grows

The tomato acreage in Holland has, after first falling, grown again in the last few years. In 2009 the acreage was back to the 1990 level.
