My take on the meeting is that this is a good first step. We certainly have lots of cranberries on hand and more will be delivered in October. This 85% producer allotment will slow that growth and allow sales to catch up. There is good news with our huge supply…more people all over the world will get the chance to taste our delicious fruit!

Details to follow. 

This means that growers will be able to deliver 85% of their sales history plus ramp up.

Cott for sale? It looks like that one may be very true….

Motion for a Producer Allotment Volume Regulation 1.30

Read on growers! Be informed! My understanding is that this and other proposals will be actively discussed at the CMC meeting. If you have an opinion, call your CMC representative before this weekend as they will be travelling to attend the meeting that starts early Monday morning.
