– California now needs big crops to cope with record and likely growing global demand – when we add in big Australian and Spanish crops, we have enough combined supply to deal with it.
– With next to nothing remaining of current crop – at either origin or destination, we are edging ever more steadily towards the knife edge of when replacement pricing will correct to levels that would better reflect a more “normal” supply.
– Cranberry prices are firming presently and due in the main to the unravelling situation in the U.S.
The new crop itself is expected to be around 15% down on last year’s crop of 13.6m barrels.

As well as the dedication that Sandor shows in his role as Hygiene Supervisor, he recently suggested an initiative relating to the use of safety equipment at Curtis that could significantly reduce wastage.
This makes Sandor a deserving recipient of our above and beyond award, the first of many we plan to award to recognise the valued contributions of our staff to help make a positive difference to the business.
