Food supply chain stabilizing for local grocers

The food supply chain has stabilized enough to make some local grocers feel pretty good about the upcoming holiday season.   Early on during the health crisis, problems arose for the food supply chain that impacted producers, processors, and foodservice operators.  Tadych’s Econofoods Store Manager Jon Calhoun is optimistic about the fourth quarter as the overall selection of stock rebounds.



Calhoun says a late pumpkin season had delayed canned products but now pumpkin pie mix and other products are available.  He notes that the pricing for turkeys and prime rib is holding close to the same as last year.  Econofoods has pre-ordered for turkeys already, but Calhoun recommends that consumers plan ahead since supermarkets may not be able to get more if they run low.
