This coming offshore season, Central American expects to ship 8.5 million equivalent cartons, similar to last season, Warren said.

For melons, Central American’s core item, the company plans to ship 4 million cartons, down from 5.5 million cartons. Melon volume may decline by 10% to 15%, Warren said, because some Central American growers have left the business because of high costs and higher freight shipping expenses.
