“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.”
