MARKET REPORT – JUNE 23RD, 2017

Think hot! Not just here – but all across the country and the U.S.  The pink on the west and southwest of today’s map is severe weather warnings for excessive heat – ranging from the mid-30’s for Seattle to the high 40’s (and low 50’s) across the deserts all the way to Texas.  (The reds and greens in the East are tornados and floods in case you were wondering.)  At the same time we have forecast highs in the high 20’s to mid 30’s for pretty much all of our service areas in B.C. through to the mid-Prairies.

MARKET REPORT – MAY 27TH, 2016

Here is your run-down for next week.

Apples:  The market continues to consume apples at an incredible rate, keeping prices high on all S. American fruit, with increases this week on Fuji ahead of an expected gap from several shippers on Gala.  On the upside, we’re 6 weeks from B.C. early dessert apples if that’s any condolence.

MARKET REPORT – JAN. 27TH, 2016

Plastic bananas full of coke

This isn’t the first time similar news items pop up, as this one did over the weekend.

“Anti-narcotics police in Ecuador found 1.5 metric tons (MT) of cocaine in recent seizures, with part of the contraband hidden in artificial bananas.  Website Eluniverso.com reported a drug bust was carried out on properties in the areas of El Carmen, Buena Fe and Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas on Wednesday and Thursday last week, leading to 10 arrests. On Wednesday morning, agents at the port of Fertisa in Guayaquil intercepted a container of bananas that would have been shipped to the United States.”

MARKET REPORT – JAN. 16TH, 2016

Not much has changed on the supply trail

Of course at the head of the news is that not much has changed on the supply trail, with continuing high prices in many categories – and of course the bloody loonie dropped another 1.5% this week.  You will note some subtle price changes on “things” that usually are stable – those are a little freight adjustment we had to make this week after getting all our freight rates lined up for the next few months.  We’ve also had to adjust salad and a few other items because currency just keeps eating away at already slim margins.
