Wet Winter Weather Update
We are experience incremental weather in the California and Arizona regions where we currently source most of our cool season veg. It is raining in Coachella Valley, down into the Imperial Valley and Yuma, Arizona is expecting rain. The rain means no harvest and supply out of these areas will be limited.
The weather situation is compounded with the long holiday weekend upon us and little to no crews picking in the fields the Monday after Christmas. Prices can be expected to increase but we anticipate prices strengthening across the board on cool season veg as the market adjusts to this weather event as well as possible shorts. This is the time when relationships really matter as strong strategic partners generally are more protected than others.
