It’s Mango Mania!!
Mangoes are plentiful in supply and the price has eased accordingly. We have good quality fruit in R2E2, Kensington Pride and Calypso. There are also now cheaper lines of fruit available that can be retailed for $20.00 per tray. Please discuss these opportunities with the buyers.
The rain has certainly affected a number of produce lines this week so we encourage you to talk to your Fruitlink Account Manager about what is available and importantly, good quality and value. Brushed potatoes are a great staple that are withstanding the slumps. Check out the product from our favourite growers, Rennie, from Northern NSW.
With winter almost upon us, now is the time to look to your winter vegie ranges and add some zing to your produce department with the wonderful citrus varieties that are available - mandarins, blood oranges, navel oranges and lemons add some real colour contrast to the lush green of broccoli and eschallots. Even better, they are terrific value for your customers at the moment!
Welcome to this weeks` Market Report, the focus is on Mandarins. You should all have received the display material to highlight the great special we are running this week! So have a go and sell, sell, sell!
This week we take a look at the FreshZest range of pre-packed herbs! Ask your Fruitlink Account Manager about them today!
It’s that time of year again when we see bananas become dull with a grey tinge due to a lack of sun and cooler weather. Lady fingers will be affected also. Don’t forget to reassure customers that the flesh is still super sweet.
