UPDATE: Green Leaf, Iceberg, and Romaine Supplies

April 03, 2017

Green leaf, iceberg, and romaine supplies will continue to be limited over the next several weeks. Next week’s green leaf and romaine volumes are forecast even lower than this week.

  • Markon First Crop Premium Green Leaf, Iceberg, and Romaine Lettuces are sporadic; Markon Best Available is being substituted due to low weights and quality issues
  • Supplies will be tighter and prices will continue to escalate next week
  • Value-added green leaf and romaine stocks will be especially tight
    • Processors and commodity suppliers are experiencing extremely strong demand, forcing them to hold customers to averages
    • Markon recommends members monitor sales to ensure key customers are covered

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
