Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) September 19, 2008
Dream Foods International, LLC (http://www.dreamfoods.com), a specialized importer of not-from-concentrate organic citrus varietal juices, continues to meet demand for lemon juice while other companies struggle with a prolonged global lemon shortage. The company's Volcano Lemon Burst® line of squeeze bottles (available in 200 ml/6.7 ounce and 100 ml/3.4 ounce sizes) and Italian Volcano® Lemon Juice (available in 1 liter glass bottles), are made from organic Italian lemons which are not affected by the conditions found in other countries -- freezing weather, a terrible growing season and shortened supplies -- responsible for this current crisis. Because of the current hurricanes which have caused excessive rain in Texas and Florida, the company expects this shortage to continue for at least six months.
"The 30 percent drop in the international supply of fresh lemons means a huge spike in prices for consumers and suppliers alike, with a single non-organic lemon commanding as much as $1.50 at mainstream supermarkets in California, which is a lemon-growing state. This is at least a 100 percent increase over the prices this past winter. The percent of fresh lemons going to be juiced has shrunk as a result and the prices have gone up. The high prices -- coupled with a dramatic jump in profits for domestic farmers -- leave consumers looking for smart alternatives to buying expensively priced lemons. Traditional lemon juice suppliers, some of who have reduced or altogether stopped shipping products are not meeting the demand. Because our products are made with organic essential oils (zest), we have a fresher tasting juice. Our products meet the need left by shortage of fresh lemons with exceptional taste and all natural ingredients," said Adriana Kahane, CEO and Founder of Dream Foods International, LLC "Volcano Lemon Burst® is an affordable way to get the best parts of a lemon -- the rich, fresh taste of the zest and juice -- for the equivalent of having bought two expensive lemons.

Both Volcano Lemon Burst® and Italian Volcano® Lemon Juice are bottled in an artisan factory, right near the rich soil of Sicily's famed Mount Etna volcano. The single-origin lemons come directly from Sicily. The company's exclusive supply agreements make is better positioned to withstand the volatility of the shortage in lemons. "Consumers can enjoy the fresh taste of these juices without paying the high retail price of fresh lemons," declared Ms. Kahane.
