February 14, 2022

Effective Saturday, February 12 2022, the United States government has temporarily suspended avocado imports from the Mexican state of Michoacan. This decision comes after a USDA inspector, working in Michoacan, received a threatening call to their cell phone. Mexican Law Enforcement authorities are working with USDA to find a solution to ensure USDA staff members safety and resume activities ASAP.

  • Inventories of Mexican avocados vary based on supplier
    • Many have fruit in route that was shipped prior to the suspension
    • If this persists longer than 2-3 days, supplies will become increasingly limited
  • California production is ramping up, supplies are expected to tighten considerably as demand shifts west
  • Markets are expected to strengthen until the suspension is lifted
