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
