Allison Moore, Fresh Produce Assn. of the Americas, says the recent freeze in Florida could have a positive impact on produce imported from Mexico. She says it’s most likely process paid to Mexican growers by local brokers will be a bit higher due to the increased demand for Mexican produce. She says it’s unlikely consumer prices would increase, though, as this could have a negative impact on the demand.
