UPDATE: Cilantro

August 01, 2018

Cilantro supplies are limited; prices are rising. Ready-Set-Serve Washed & Trimmed Cilantro is sporadic due to erratic quality; packer label will be substituted as needed.

  • Hot, humid weather in the Southern California growing regions is creating quality and shelf-life concerns
  • High temperatures continue to affect growth and decrease yields
  • While Markon will continue to source only California-grown cilantro, Mexican supplies will enter the market in a couple of weeks, adding volume to the market and easing industry prices

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
