Ford's Produce Supply Update

Ford’s Produce App!

The December Washington State Apple storage report came out and has been revised to 150 million cartons. This is 5 million less than the estimate of November 1.

Cantaloupe supplies continue to be demand exceeds supply and we expect will continue to be such going forward in the near future.  Light supplies of Guatemalan fruit are arriving into Florida and Texas ports but rain in the growing regions has caused supply to be very short.

The Mexican tomato market is finally seeing some relief in the way of product coming out of the Culiacan growing area.

California is reaching the end of their grape season, but they’re still shipping high quality grapes out of storage.

Strawberries remain extremely limited, with California done for the year, and Florida off to a bad start.
