Market for Mexican green onion rebounded this week

Organic green onion supply is stable out of Mexico. "There had been some poor weather in Baja earlier this year which put a damper on production," says Darrell Beyer with The Beyer Company/Bluebird Mountain Organics, which sources its green onions year-round out of Mexico. "However, generally this year we haven't hit too many hiccups in supply thanks to our partners in Mexico. When a lot of that product was damaged, they managed to keep our program numbers pretty full and we hit some pretty good markets in that time because it did get wild for a bit. It was short for at least a month or two."

As for demand, it's also fairly even year-round.

All of this put markets above $20 and sometimes peaking close to $40 at times. More recently though, supply has settled down and remained largely steady. Two weeks ago though, the markets came off somewhat though those seem to have rebounded this week.

Family-owned company
All of this is likely to be a topic of conversation when the company returns to the upcoming Organic Product Summit next month, July 10-11 in Monterey, California. At the show, Beyer, and his wife, Lianne Beyer, who also works in the company, as well as one of his Mexican partners, Rafael Navarro, will be at booth #814. "We want to show people we are a family-owned company and we will have a stronger presence this year and a better story to tell about the foundation of the company and what we hope to achieve with our grower partners," says Beyer. "I'm looking forward to getting in front of people. It's really hard to get people on the phone nowadays and it's just nice to be able to see people there and talk with them."

That includes meeting with potential suppliers. "Along with generating some new business, I'm also always looking for additional growers and suppliers. The way we're structured is to help growers ultimately," says Beyer.
