Global shortages in banana market!
Many of you are aware of the shortages affecting bananas. These shortages in supply are a result of both weather and political events in Central and South America.
- Guatemala and Mexico are experiencing cold weather/cold fronts halting the fruit's progression on the plants
- Costa Rica is receiving heavy amounts of rain causing flooding on the farms. The equipment (containers) are unable to reach the farms and harvesting crews unable to reach the farms and get into the fields due to excess water. Limon is experiencing port closures due to high swells.
The decreased production has also caused delays in deliveries as growers struggle to fill vessels out of other ports of call.
We appreciate your patience through this time and rest assured, everyone is doing their best to get everything back on track.
