Promotions should be robust for the Fourth of July, Buurma said.
“There seems to be a good amount of corn around, and the eating quality is very good.”
Georgia volumes were abundant the week of June 17, but that will likely change soon, said Nate Branch, sales director for Southern Valley Fruit & Vegetable Inc., Norman Park, Ga.
“We’ll have good volumes the next five or six days, but talking with other shippers, by the middle of next week, there will be a shortage,” Branch said June 18.
That could limit promotable volumes for the Fourth of July, Branch said.
Southern Valley reported great quality and good yields the week of June 17, he said.
