Mike Mauti to release Produce Almanac

Not real figures - for demonstration purposes only.

Mike Mauti, the managing partner of Execulytics Consulting, plans to publish the 2019 Produce Almanac. According to the company’s press release, it includes comprehensive data and commentary on all significant produce commodities. There are five-year cost comparisons, premiums for organics, retail pricing from around the United States plus insights, recommendations and predictions.  

 

“Whether a retailer, wholesaler, grower, producer or food service operator, the extensive data included in this book provides deep intelligence into where the industry has been and valuable insight into where the markets are headed,” says Mauti. “Businesses in the United States, Canada and abroad will find simple visualizations to answer questions like ‘what was the average cost premium for organic blueberries in January?’ or ‘what was the FOB cost for lemons in June?’ or even ‘what was the U.S. national retail price inflation for Gala apples in July?’ Having the answers to these questions, plus thousands more at your fingertips, could make the difference for your company. By the way, the answers to those three questions are 41%, $36 and 31% respectively.”

 

Visual recaps compare 2018 weekly FOB costs to 2017 for all key commodities. Costs are derived from USDA and Agriculture Canada archives using a simple calculation to provide a single cost for every week for each commodity shipping from American or Canadian locations. Plus, a special section on organics deep dives the cost premiums relative to alternatives grown using conventional methods. Also included in the Almanac is a retail pricing recap and a complete accounting of all available weekly costs for the last five years.

 

The 2019 Produce Almanac is still in development as the data runs through the end of 2018. It is expected to be available as an e-book in January. For more information, please go to the website below.
