pineapple stock image

Markon Cooperative BB #:123315 released this crop update this week:

Pineapple supplies are scarce in Costa Rica and Mexico. Volume will remain limited through the month of May.

Supplies into the West Coast and Texas will remain limited through May. East Coast volume will remain low through mid-May.

Expect limited production of large-size fruit; seven-count pineapples are the most readily available. Demand will strengthen in late April/early May in preparation for the Mother’s Day holiday. Prices will climb; size substitutions may become necessary to fill orders.

Please contact your Markon customer service representative for more information.
