There was a tomato crisis in Britain, where tomato imports from overseas decreased.
According to the news from the British media, tomatoes from South Europe and North Africa are not reaching the required number in Britain, but the people of London say that they are worried about the higher inflation than tomatoes.
British media have reported that tomatoes are running low in supermarkets, while cucumbers, cucumbers and chillies are also out of stock. This is due to rising costs of agriculture and general inflation. The war in Ukraine and the bad weather in North Africa and South Europe are also important reasons.
According to the report, hot weather has significantly affected crop production in regions such as Southern Europe and North Africa, followed by cold weather growth, which has also affected harvests.
British Retail Consortium official Andrew Opie said in his statement yesterday that weather conditions have disrupted the harvest of some fruits and vegetables, including tomatoes.
Last year, UK grocers faced supply chain disruptions due to the Russia-Ukraine war, but their availability improved significantly in the run-up to Christmas.
During the winter the UK usually imports around 90% of crops such as cucumbers and tomatoes, but becomes almost self-sufficient in the summer, with the UK relying particularly on imports from Morocco and Spain during the winter.
