UPDATE: MEXICAN AVOCADOS

February 17, 2022

U.S. and Mexican officials are currently working to identify when the changes that were proposed in yesterday’s meeting will be finalized and implemented. As soon as a date is agreed upon, Markon will advise. Once harvest activities resume in Michoacan, Mexico it will take some time to fill the pipeline (possibly two to three weeks).

Rough estimate on timeline:

  • Two to three days before hard green fruit crosses into the USA
  • One to three days until green fruit arrives at ripening centers or direct drops to distribution centers
  • Two to five days to ripen, depending customer ripeness requests

Supplies will be extremely limited next week. All shipments will be priced day of shipment. Pricing is expected to be elevated well into March.

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
