Cauliflower shortages hit UK consumer

Consumers in Britain are apparently experiencing a cauliflower shortage due to the extreme weather which has killed much of the harvest.

BBC News are reporting that cauliflower prices are set to increase following the heatwave which spread across Europe this summer and heavy rainfall in Lincolnshire – home of the UK cauliflower industry. Other harvests also effected are broccoli, cabbage and Brussels sprouts.

“Crops can withstand a reasonable amount of variation in weather but the conditions in June were too much and as a result crops have suffered, and this is leading to a shortage of supply.”
– British Growers Association (BGA).

Hotels and restaurants are being advised to remove cauliflower from their menus until stocks recover.

  1. Food shortages are also expected in the U.S. too due to severe weather patterns and climate change issues. We will all be learning how to make do and mend as the folks during the world war 2 era did. Full circle it seems as the 80th anniversary of the Dig for Victory is coming up. Creative cooking is on the menu. We must remember those beautiful wild nettles are full of vitamins. Nature still has a lot to offer. Thanks for the article Sean. Blessings.

  2. Well I can’t think of a better reason to just eat something else instead of brassicas for one season. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. How about some chard? I plan to eat more squash. Need a few minerals? They have supplements for that. Now a PROTEIN shortage, that would be devastating! But a vegetable shortage is rather easily overcome by a greenhouse & some strong lights. They are being built and we eat a lot of hydroponics in the US already. Geo-engineering is the reason for the wild weather. Those mad scientists responsible for these outrageous ‘experiments’ really need to be punished. We are not guinea pigs!!
