The latest forecast from Thailand speaks of a possible small surge in the harvest during mid November to early December. This will partially compensate the delayed production during September and October.
However, it seems that harvesting volume will likely be affected by flood damage suffered in the south during Oct and early November. Signs of recovery are not visible yet, but the situation may start improving from next week on, even though daily tonnage may not exceed 8000 MTs/day. The Latest estimate of annual tonnage in 2013 is 2,180,730 MTs in all Thailand, 1,744,584 MTs of which go to the canneries. The fruit supply itself this winter is less than previous years, with some items being tight.
