Mexican avocado growers continue to hold fruit from reaching the market; harvesting remains at a standstill. Stocks are quickly being depleted in the U.S.; fruit is not being imported to fill the supply pipeline.
Avocado growers are anticipating extremely limited availability for the next few weeks, with possible order allocations taking place throughout the industry. Contracts may be declared force majeure due to unforeseeable circumstances. Many suppliers are not giving out advanced pricing. Open-market orders will be priced on the date of shipment to secure product.
