MARKET REPORT – DEC. 22ND, 2017

Hoping you have an enjoyable holiday season! 

First of all, best of the season to all of you hard-working people in the produce world – hopefully you can walk away from the stress now.  Did I order enough broccoli?  Will we run out of Brussels sprouts?  What will I do with those 2 cases of cranberries I didn’t need, or the extra Poultry Spice clams?  Well, it’s pretty well too late now for many of you, so just let it go if you can. (We’ve let go of the fact that we a few dozen extra packs of poultry blend ourselves.)

MARKET REPORT – SEPT. 13TH, 2017

Avocados…

FIRST, This first report is from Bloomberg News 6 months ago, just for reference and some interesting factoids.  The meat of the story follows below this first one.

A 10-kilogram (22-pound) box of Hass avocados from the state of Michoacan, Mexico’s biggest producer, cost 530 pesos ($27.89) Thursday, according to the government. The price, which is subject to seasonal swings, is more than double what it was a year earlier and the highest in data going back 19 years.
