Avocado Prices In Canada Are Out Of Control & Won’t Be Going Down Any Time Soon

Avocado prices in Canada have risen from about $1 each to $2 each. Lower supply from California and Mexico and higher demand are contributing to the price hike, explains Rabobank Senior Analyst David Magana. The shortage in California avocados was mostly due to hotter and dryer weather, which greatly impacted crop blooming, causing yields to be lower, he says.
