FROM THE FIELDS: SALINAS VALLEY QUALITY
May 20, 2020
California’s Salinas Valley has experienced volatile weather over the last 14 days. Temperatures in the mid-80s to low 90s combined with isolated showers have caused industry-wide quality and shelf-life concerns in commodity and value-added items. Some lettuce and leafy greens products are exhibiting:
Mildew and mildew damage
Premature pinking, yellowing, and shortened shelf-life in value-added items
Markon inspectors are working with suppliers to obtain the best quality available for Markon orders.
