2019 was a very exciting year, with weather patterns and harvest volumes different than any year before. As we kickoff 2020, the extreme weather of 4th quarter 2019 will be reflected in reduced pack out yields during the 1st quarter 2020.
The lower yields can be expected from slower growth during such weather, along with a higher percentage of fruit that will be culled out of the pack as we strive to only ship the best possible pineapple each week.
We have doubled up on our Quality Control teams to ensure we avoid any detectable issues, this also helps us carefully manage what is in each container while also providing our customers with real time packing info as it occurs on the farm level.
We love pineapple, and we love our customers, and appreciate their loyalty each year as we all grow together!
