Uk Exports Under Threat

UK PEA growers sitting on high quality marrowfats could lose out to cheaper Canadian and New Zealand exports by waiting for higher prices, warns the PGRO.

Current prices are 200/t plus for good quality samples, notes director Geoffrey Gent.”UK merchants have lost business because they cannot meet orders,” says Mr Gent.

“Export orders are also being lost, which is unfortunate for processors, who have worked hard to increase the export trade.”
