UPDATE: Limited Tomato Supplies
December 18, 2019
Tomato supplies remain extremely limited. Prices continue to rise.
The primary growing regions in Mexico (Baja, Chihuahua, Sinaloa, and Sonora) were impacted by heavy rainfall and flooding in late November
Overall Mexican volume remains below normal levels and is not expected to increase until the new year
Florida stocks are tight; higher-than-normal October temperatures have resulted in reduced crop yields through December
Weather-related quality issues are a concern across the industry; shelf-life is shorter than normal
Contract trigger levels have been met; Act of God clauses are being implemented
Expect escalating prices and extremely tight supplies into early January
