WATCH YOUR RETAILS! And other good news.
You have been consistently warned by me that the organic supply chain was in climate chaos, road chaos, El Nino chaos and just general other kinds of chaos, and the birds have come home to roost this week with substantial price changes. WATCH YOUR RETAILS! Some prices are adjusting Thursday by 20% or more on a selection of greens, including celery, and all sub-tropicals – tomatoes, eggplant, cukes, zucchini, cherry toms etc. Coastal California growers can’t get machinery into fields to harvest in the mud. Unseasonal temperatures across the south have slowed growth, right down into Mexico. Road closures from landslides and heavy rain have affected Baja north into San Diego County. There is a virtual bidding war for some product – especially celery and cauliflower. Sorry to start off with bad news….and here’s more.
