UPDATE: Rising Tomato Prices

December 03, 2019

All varieties of tomato supplies are tightening due to rain in Mexico’s Baja Peninsula. Prices are rising.

  • Lower volume is expected for the next three to four weeks until new crop production begins in mainland Mexico
    • Baja production has been affected by rain
    • Florida supplies are not plentiful enough to meet demand
  • Rain-related quality issues are reducing yields; Markon recommends ordering for quick turns
  • Expect elevated markets and tight supplies of all varieties through December
