ADVERSE weather along Spain’s east coast has led to a shortage of vegetables, producers have warned.
Severe flooding throughout Murcia and Almeria in September and October hampered the planting effort. Then torrential rain and freezing temperatures in November badly affected the growing process.
The shortage has led to an increase in prices, with broccoli and cauliflower soaring to over €2 per kilo.
Artichoke and iceberg lettuce prices have also risen, according to exporter Verafruta.
