OCTOBER-NOVEMER 2021 *Special Alert* 

MUSHROOM SUPPLY UPDATE

A wide range of production obstacles are expected to result in much lower yields of all mushroom varietals over the next few months. These include supply chain shortages of raw materials, both at the producer and transportation levels, and a drastically reduced farm labor pool.

Due to the nature of mushroom production, substitutions for certain raw materials needed for growing are limited or altogether not possible. The outlook for the holiday season, in particular, is very light supplies for all types of mushrooms, in all parts of the country.

While we will continue to work with our vendors and suppliers to provide you the best supply possible, we recommend planning ahead for potential shortages when planning winter and early spring menus.
