COVID-19 EFFECT: Belgium: Potato sector the most affected
Although Belgium is certainly affected by the coronavirus, the consequences for imports are still not too bad.
The supply of overseas products will continue for the time being, but this can change quickly. Flights are being canceled and the importers hope that the ports will not come to a standstill.
Sales at the Centre Européen de Fruits et Légumes (European Center for Fruit and Vegetables) continue as normal. Sales no longer take place in the gallery and the stalls are also no longer placed. The gallery remains accessible, but the center has called for orders to be placed if possible by telephone or email. In the potato sector, the companies that supply industrial kitchens and fast food companies with potatoes and chips are currently particularly affected.
With regard to the orders for processed vegetables, there has been a drop in the demand from large caterers (schools, hospitals, etc.), although this has been offset by the greater purchases from retailers.
