Avocado Alert!

By June 20, 2019 Chef's Feed, Produce

Please be advised, the forecast for Avocados for the next 4-6 weeks doesn’t look good. It appears that we will see a shortage during this time. We can expect extreme prices during this shortage.

 

Mexico volume is much lower right now due to the end of one harvest area/variety.ย  Chile and Peru do have some harvest, but their prices will stay in line with Mexico. California does have a harvest coming, but they will be higher than Mexico.

 

In short, there will be a very high market price for the next 4-6 weeks, until supplies catch up with demand.
