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
