Team, as mentioned last week, we are starting to see stay-at-home orders being lifted but this varies by location. We are seeing adjustments to these orders in Maine, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Texas, Florida, and earlier this week Governor Whitmer announced changes to the stay-at-home order starting on June 8th in Michigan. Due to additional challenges the stay-at-home order has been extended for Ontario. As the orders are being lifted, we are seeing strong growth in retail with a continual increase in consumption of tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers. Consumers are also continuing to spend more per shopping trip than they were prior to COVID-19.
Our Flavor Army continues to stand strong as we work hard at our dedication to meet the increasing demand in the supply chain. Consumers are making fresh produce top of mind when getting their groceries and I’m proud that they are choosing SUNSET® to get their flavorful, quality produce.
