Duda Farm Fresh Foods Highlights Category Growth and Weather Update
OVIEDO, FL - What’s going on over at the fields of Duda Farm Fresh Foods? Luckily for our curious minds, the supplier’s latest weather update is spilling the deets.
In its most recent release and crop update, the grower reported that Florida is experiencing warmer temperatures this week ranging from the low-60s to mid-80s with a small chance of rain. The company also noted cooler-than-normal temperatures on the West Coast, ranging from the low-30s to mid-60s with mostly sunny skies.
Diving further into conditions on the West Coast, Duda Farm Fresh Foods also stated that the recent cooler temperatures have slowed down production for Iceberg lettuce, broccoli, and cauliflower. However, celery supplies are increasing across all West Coast growing regions. Supplies also continue to be heavy for Romaine and Romaine hearts as the market begins to soften, the release explained.
In its East Coast growing regions, Duda has reported that the celery and radish markets remain steady with excellent-quality products. The freeze earlier in January has led to lower volumes of the producer’s fresh and tray-packed corn, but the spring corn volume is established as planting has taken place.
