Dear Ole Tyme Produce Customers:

Pineapple supplies are incredibly scarce across all regions (Costa Rica, South America, and Mexico).

  • Supplies are usually tight during this time of the year, but with excess storms throughout all areas, product remains extremely limited.
    • All sizes are affected.
    • This is expected to last through the end of August.
  • Some quality issues to be aware of are softness, over-ripeness, and decay.
    • Shippers are doing all they can to ship the best product.
  • Suppliers are doing everything they can to cover all orders.
    • Size substitution options will be presented when needed.
    • Lead time on orders is crucial.

If you have any additional questions, please reach out to your Sales Representative or our Customer Service team.

Thank you,

Ole Tyme Produce
