D’Arrigo Bros. Co., is seeing a light start to its commodities, said Margaret D’Arrigo-Martin, executive vice president of sales and marketing.

“Quality is fine, but volumes are down, which is no terrible thing because the markets have been bad anyway,” D’Arrigo-Martin said.

Richard Fisher, vice president of commodity sales, Dole Fresh Vegetables, Monterey, said the company has less acreage on broccoli, cauliflower and lettuce, though “all other items have stayed about the same.”

Weather also delayed Dole’s crops, Fisher said, but caused no major quality problems.
