Banana supplies are tightening. Production in Central America has hit seasonal lows; vessel delays are compounding supply challenges on the West Coast. Firm markets and limited stocks are expected into March.

  • Current supplies are coming from Guatemala, Costa Rica, Panama, and Ecuador
  • Banana production dips each winter as temperatures cool in the growing regions
  • Vessels are limited with sporadic arrivals, creating periodic gaps in supply
  • Expect a demand-exceeds-supply situation through the first quarter of 2023
