Costa Rica News – With production on Costa Rica’s pineapples dipping, demand for Mexico’s fruit is in high demand.
“Right now we have volume at both our Texas and California distribution centers. From what I understand production in Costa Rica came off a little bit so that helps the Mexican pineapple,” said Darwin Dodd of Chula Brand. “We’re getting really nice quality pineapple; very nice color and very high in Brix.” Growers in the Veracruz region are benefitting from low supply elsewhere and it’s getting to the end user three to five days after harvest. “It’s nice and fresh,” he said.
