Supplies of ginger are slim currently.
“Our supplies of ginger are from Brazil and the volume is significantly lower. There’s approximately 50 percent less compared to last year,” says Jim Burnette of Weston, FL-based Delina Fresh.
Currently conventional ginger is coming out of Brazil while organic ginger is shipping from Peru. Burnette notes that competing regions shipping ginger are generally China and Costa Rica for conventional ginger.
