We are delighted, but still cautious, about how well the Westlands Amaranth crop is developing, due to the extra work we detailed in our previous blog Westlands Seasonal Update - Amaranth.
This week we have seen the benches producing the crop at the size we expect, but in lower quantities. Westlands have been able to send out small volumes to our supply base this week and we are expecting to do the same, in the same small quantities for most of next week.
How can our Customers help us?
Please only order what you actually need, as this means we only harvest what is needed and will ensure that we can keep up with your orders. By not over ordering now, will mean more crop at the most important later stage of Christmas!
We are expecting the volumes to increase, steadily, over the next 10 days. Thank you so much to all of our Customers who have born with us, thank you to those who shared and Tweeted our Seasonal Update. Using the knowledge we have gained this year will allow us to improve the position for all of our customers next year.
Please be assured that we are working hard to ensure full supply of Westlands Amaranth for your important Christmas menu weeks, but, as ever in the wonderful world of Fresh Produce, we are not promising anything!
Many thanks on behalf of the whole team at WestlandsWow.
