UPDATE: Limited Lime Supplies
March 05, 2019
Mexican lime shipments into the U.S. are below normal levels; supplies are extremely limited. Prices are escalating.
Current rain and cold weather slowed production in the growing region of Veracruz, Mexico, further depleting volume
Imports into the U.S. will fall in the coming weeks; expect tight supplies and elevated prices through the month
Large sizes (110- and 150-count fruit) dominate available stocks; flexibility in size and grade may be needed to fill orders
Rain-related quality issues such as oil spotting and stylar end breakdown are concerns
