Volcano Eruptions in Guatemala
On Sunday afternoon, and again on Tuesday night, volcano Fuego in Guatemala erupted. The eruptions got the inhabitants of the surrounding areas by surprise. Lava and hot ash covered surrounding villages. Many people died and even more people are still missing. Some of the production areas of among others Leatherleaf, Aralia, Aspidistra of Corporacion TAK, production areas of Fansa and Leucodendron of Inversiones Primavera (Oligar), got covered with ash. Fuego is a volcano that may remain active for a longer period of time.
The mentioned production areas will have lower production since the hot ash damaged part of the crops and the production areas need to get cleaned before further production. We expect to receive sufficient product from other production areas to fill your orders for these products. We sympathize with our suppliers and wish them all the best.
