Curry & Co., which has brokered some blackberries in the past, will pack its own for the first time this season, Klackle said.
HBF International LLC, Sheridan, Ore., should have blackberries through September, said Doug Perkins, managing director.
Heavy demand for the process market could drive up prices on fresh blackberries, he said.
Watsonville, Calif.-based Well-Pict Inc. will start a new raspberry deal in Oxnard, Calif., in late fall and will have raspberries from that region into summer, said Dan Crowley, sales manager.
The company should have plenty of its proprietary raspberry — the 2933 — this year, he said.
