Broccoli in short supply due to wet and cold weather

Broccoli in short supply due to wet and cold weather

Over the past three months the cold and wet weather conditions across the country has stunted the growth of broccoli, cauliflower and some cabbage varieties.

"We just do not have the volumes of UK field-grown broccoli that should be available now from growers in Lincolnshire, Cornwall, Kent or even Scotland" said Zeenat Anjari, business development manager at New Covent Garden Market Authority (CGMA).

However, if the warmer weather holds, volumes of brassicas should return to normal levels in time for the London 2012 Olympics.

The CGMA is encouraging chefs to think about some alternatives. There is a lot of marrow available now, as well as peas and broad beans.
