Market Report: August 16, 2021

-o-

We’re not just a seafood company anymore.

It appears that prime beef products remains high due to short supply caused by poor grade out this time of year. From what we are hearing from the packers, the downward move in overall beef prices seems to have bottomed out. Our quail supplier continues to experience labor problems and the only steady supply we are counting on right now are the semi-boneless birds.
