UPDATE: Garlic

September 10, 2015


Garlic will remain limited for the coming months, especially domestic shipments. Supply should meet regular demand, but growers have started to control inventories.


  • Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic orders will be kept to average volumes
  • Yields are below normal in current fields, mainly due to water- and weather-related issues
  • Garlic harvested during the summer is put into storage for year-round distribution
  • Chinese garlic, while still not plentiful, is an option to meet increased demand (a small percentage is also imported from Argentina, Mexico, and Spain)
  • Chinese peeled garlic has a similar shelf-life to California product; the flavor profile is less pungent as there is a higher water content and less oil
