“There are three things colliding at once on the food supply chain.
1) labor shortage – the stores can’t find help to put products on the shelf.
2) cost increases of products, most distributors have raised the lead time to 90 days, this causes a problem if the cost increase is not accepted in time the manufacturer won’t ship until the cost increases are in effect.
3) transportation cost/drivers.
Gas and diesel prices we all know have gone up this gets put into the cost of goods AKA -price increases.
Driver availability and lack of CDL drivers to move products is also compounding the problem.
Expect these to continue in 2022.”
