Last week our VP Courtney Dyess-Mam got the opportunity to visit an incredible community in Northern Mississippi that is 100% donation-based supporting displaced children. For more than 125 years, Palmer Home for Children https://palmerhome.org/ has empowered children in critical situations to reach their true potential by providing restorative environments that support healthy development and nurture resilience. With the support of Southeast Produce Council, Inc., the Southeast Produce Council https://seproducecouncil.com/about-sepc/committees/, we were able to give these children a beautiful garden that helps promote fruits and vegetables. The children were given butterflies to release at the dedication ceremony, it was really special to witness their excitement in that moment and desire to work actively to care for the garden that was now theirs. The whole experience was truly heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time.

"Trucking troubles are nothing new to the fresh produce industry, but the recent vaccination mandates by the governments of Canada and the U.S. are taking those problems to a whole new level.

As of Jan. 15, Canada imposed a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for truckers crossing into Canada from the U.S. or between Canadian provinces. On Jan. 22, the U.S. imposed a mandate for non-U.S. truckers crossing into the U.S.

The two mandates together have alarmed produce industry leaders, who say the rules have led to truck shortages and predatory pricing."

Trucking troubles are nothing new to the fresh produce industry, but the recent vaccination mandates by the governments of Canada and the U.S. are taking those problems to a whole new level.

“This is not a food inflation spike driven by a lack of ingredients. We certainly have great crops in the United States. We owe the farmers such a debt of gratitude when it comes to their ability to produce,” he says.

Rather, the increase is prices are coming from food manufacturing and distribution levels.

“We're still down about two and a half million people in total employment. So as we see people come back into the labor market in 2022 that's going to help mitigate some of the problems we're having with supply chain. It’s going to allow factories to run better. It's going to allow packaging prices to come back down. It's going to give a lot of restaurants better staff. So I think the food inflation spike–which has been primarily driven by that labor situation–is going to be a little bit self regulating.”

“I wouldn't be surprised as we put Omicron behind us that we're going to see a restaurant recovery in the summer. But right now the supermarket is still doing quite well on a historical basis," says Michael Swanson.
