What does this mean exactly? Well, for Chipotle, which uses 35 million pounds of avocados each year for its guacamole, it may mean its guacamole will have to go on a hiatus. Chipotle reported that, if prices increase dramatically, the restaurant would rather wait until prices fall rather than make the cost increase for consumers.
