Market Report    
On August 19th a severe storm hit the Dangshan area in China where 60% of the pears used for canning grow.  The wind was so severe that 60-80% of the pears fell to the ground. The pear harvesting season is just starting in China, and that means that no pears have been harvested/canned yet.
Prices for raw material have already gone up, and factories have already raised their prices accordingly.  We will adjust our prices accordingly, and this is before the additional tariffs of 10% effective September 24th and 25% January 1, 2019.

Reports are coming in that overall tomato output in Italy is down 8.7%. We are working with the supplier to secure product and pricing. We will keep you updated as the harvest comes to a close in the next four weeks.
