Date Shortage

Dates are grown in 2 major areas of the world, the California desert in Coachella near Palm Springs and on the North Coast of Africa, think Egypt, Morocco and Algeria. Both areas had major weather related damage this year creating a massive supply shortage.  As a result there was a huge international pull from the California supply, creating an even bigger deficit.  This is a prime example of supply and demand.   At times we have experienced a challenge in sourcing supply and the consumer will notice a price increase due to the limited amount of California dates.
