Some Grocers Looking Lean

Many of the country’s biggest food makers are telling grocers that they will have limited quantities of a number of their products heaing into the holidays.Some grocers say labor, commodity and transportation constraints are blocking supply chains. On top of that, when supply is tight, manufacturers often eliminate some of their fringe items.Packaging issues also continue to be a problem. For example, some seasonings are in tight supply due to challenges procuring glass bottles. Companies such as Costco and Sam’s Club have recently reinstated purchase limits for customers on some products.
