Doing business in 2021 has been a lot of things. Boring isn’t one of them. We’re currently seeing record high shipping costs, historic labor shortages, starch and sweetener shortages, another Covid-19 surge via the Delta variant, drought and wildfire threatening much of the West, and rising prices across virtually every category.
Costing and forecasting are as difficult as ever.
What will the apple and berry fruit crop look like this year? Will the drought and wildfires be game changers? Will much of the workforce return in September as has been widely speculated? Will the shipping backlog and soaring shipping costs be further exacerbated by the Delta variant? Will there be any resolution in the starch and sweetener shortages?
