UPDATE: ICEBERG AND ROMAINE
July 21, 2020
Iceberg and romaine prices are rising.
Foodservice demand started to increase last week and will continue to get stronger this week
Demand is focused in the Salinas Valley, although some orders are shifting to regional harvesting areas such as Canada, the East Coast, and the Midwest
Quality is excellent; however, field weights are lighter, lowering overall yields
Markets were previously forecast to remain flat, but these recent circumstances have caused an uptick that will persist into August, barring any significant COVID developments
