California Prunes

According to the California Prune Board, the 2021 harvest is concluding with slight uncertainty among prune producers and processors about whether total production will meet the estimate of 68,000 metric tons. Overall quality, sweetness, and sizes appear to meet the premium standards expected from California. Robust domestic and international shipments continued throughout 2021. The increased shipments combined with added pressure due to short crops in other producing regions, have tightened California’s carefully managed inventories. Nonetheless, processors look forward to the new season with enthusiasm and confidence that they can supply customers in key markets.

Chile Prunes

As per Chileprunes, in line with the global inventory situation, stocks in Chile, and also Argentina, are very low, which along with the summer rains have resulted in rising prices. The current extreme drought might change the production final outcome. Spring conditions will be decisive.
