New season Imperial Mandarins and Navel oranges have started and are in good supply. Pink Lady’s have improved in quality and are eating well. Avocado prices are back and value can be found by using bulk packs. Australian Pomegranites are available and a good line to increase your range. Strawberry quality has been hard.

Vegetable Happenings

With the inconsistent weather vegetable quality has only been 6 out of 10. The cooler weather has slowed the growing process so supply has been down which means prices are up. The Australian asparagus season has finished so all product will be imported. The quality of machine picked beans has improved with prices coming back.
