US: Mango volumes to remain steady through December

Mango imports from Ecuador will arrive to the United States in December in good volumes, and depending on when the rain puts a stop to harvesting, supplies could last through January. Pricing is likely to remain competitive through the end of the year.

“Volumes in December will be robust,” said Ronnie Cohen of Vision Produce. “Ecuador, as a country, will probably ship less than historical volumes, but a delayed season concentrated all of the volumes in a smaller period of time.” Retailers have had ready access to mangos for most of the year, and current prices are such that fruit will likely move quickly. On November 30, prices for a flat of Tommy Atkins 6s from Ecuador were between $6.50 and $7.50 at the Philadelphia port of entry, and prices for a flat of Ataulfo 18s were between $8.00 and $9.00.

“I believe prices will remain aggressive to keep volumes flowing,” said Cohen. “With aggressive pricing, demand naturally flows.”
