US economy favors diversified fruit and vegetable producers in Central America
The US economy’s struggles present some opportunities for wholesalers and retailers of Central American and Caribbean produce.
“There’s a slow improvement in the economy,” said Michael Warren, president of Central American Produce, Florida. “There’s a little more emphasis on fresh fruits and vegetables, but people’s spending habits have changed quite a bit. They’re still watching their dollars.”
Known for its Mayan Pride label, Central American Produce remains in an expansion mode, Warren said.
