“Because of the lockdown and the nice weather, people ate more strawberries.” That is one of the conclusions of the Boerenbond, which looked at the turnover of the various sectors in agriculture and horticulture. Strawberry prices were 40 percent higher than last year.
The prices of apples and pears also rose significantly, so that the turnover of the entire fruit sector this year will probably be a third higher than in 2019. In the vegetable sector, there is an increase of 0.9 percent.
Besides strawberries, more eggs, beef and chicory were also sold. No coincidence, says Vanessa Saenen of the Boerenbond: “Due to the forced increase in home consumption during the lockdown, for example, but also afterwards, we see that the demand for strawberries, eggs, beef and chicory has risen sharply, and the prices there are therefore much better. ”
Sales in the egg sector rose 16.8 percent after falling sharply last year due to bird flu. Mainly thanks to eggs, the entire animal sector posted a turnover increase of 0.9 percent.
