Core Tip: Last week, the new ginger harvest arrived at Rida Trade in Poeldijk, the Netherlands.
Last week, the new ginger harvest arrived at Rida Trade in Poeldijk, the Netherlands. According to sales manager Gerry Li, expectations for the new season are high. “Due to bad weather conditions, China is expected to send 20 to 30 per cent less ginger this way. But I’m very satisfied with the quality of the first shipment.”

“We’re still receiving limited volumes now, but demand is good and price levels are rising every day. But that’s because the market is empty. Both Peru, with organic ginger, and Brazil have ended their seasons, it’s now mainly about China,” Gerry continues. Rida Trade grows their own ginger in Shandong, in China, but they also buy ginger to supply their European customers. Last year, the company imported as many as 700 containers from China.

“Although we mainly sold to wholesaler’s markets in the first few years, we’re now supplying supermarkets more and more. The changing wholesaler’s prices result in a difficult trade, and we can agree to good programmes with supermarkets. We pack the ginger in every desired packaging at our location in Poeldijk,” Gerry concludes.

Besides ginger, Rida Trade also offers an extensive Chinese assortment, consisting of sweet potatoes, garlic, mushrooms, chestnuts, nashi pears and eddoes.
