Both California and Florida (key growing areas during the winter months) have been hit hard by cold and freezing temperatures in recent days. This has had a huge effect on supplies of many key items including kale, cucumbers, zucchini, strawberries and several other items.
As always, we will do our best to provide you with the finest quality fresh organic produce available, but it’s important to understand that because of the severity of this freeze and the breadth of products that are affected, we expect to see limited availability and higher pricing on some key items.
It’s important that we also help the consumer understand this issue as they shop in your store. To this end, we have created a sign explaining this current state of weather and its impact on our food supply. The sign is in PDF format so you can easily download, print out, laminate, and post in your department. Click Here or on the image of the sign to see the PDF and begin your download
We will do our best to keep you informed of the enduring affect of this freeze, and as always, we appreciate your support and will continue to serve you with the best organic produce available.
