Where’s all the flour?

April 1, 2020

Have you been wondering what is with the bread shortages in the last few weeks? Thanks to John Hart for filling us in!
* The buying patterns are all over the place, making it really hard for bread manufacturers to get supply right (According to John – 150% higher than normal demand last week, and then 50% lower than normal on Monday).
* We’ve just had a bumper wheat harvest in NZ – there’s heaps of flour – that’s not the problem…
* Its the packaging! NZ bought 4 YEARS worth of flour from the supermarkets in a fortnight, and so manufacturers have run out of bags.
I’ll see if I can find out more today…..
