Avocado supplies are extremely limited as Mexico’s production has diminished more rapidly than anticipated. The California and Peruvian seasons are underway, but volume is not sufficient to support U.S./Canadian avocado demand over the next three weeks. The commodity avocado industry is in a demand-far-exceeds-supply situation.


  • Production in the Michoacan growing region continues to decline; the season is ending
  • The incoming summer crop from Jalisco is not meeting maturity standards; dry conditions have delayed harvests until late June
  • Expect to make size and grade substitutions to help fill orders
  • Suppliers are currently not quoting lid pricing: orders will be priced day of at market price
  • Markets are escalating; extremely tight supplies are forecast for the next two to three weeks

Value Added

  • Volume is high in multiple growing regions; value-added suppliers use predominantly processor-grade Michoacan fruit
  • Ready-Set-Serve Avocado Chunks and Pulp are recommended as substitutes when commodity stocks are not available
  • Expect steady markets and ample supplies over the next two to three weeks
