We are beginning to see shortages in mushrooms. Our suppliers are currently cutting our orders by 10 – 100%.
The top reasons for the shortages from our vendors are:
- Continued labor shortages, particularly for harvesting
- Production reduced to match labor on hand
- Shortage of raw materials to grow mushrooms
- Weather changes
Unfortunately, our vendors do not expect this situation to improve before January, 2022.
Currently the hardest hit mushrooms are crimini and oyster, but all mushrooms are affected by the shortages and the shortages will continue.
There have been cuts on sliced mushrooms as well as different sizes of white mushrooms.
Your mushroom orders may be subbed, shorted, or allocated. If you have the option of subbing a different type of mushroom that may be in stock, please do so. Our WOW Center can help you determine which mushrooms are in stock. Text them at 502-587-9012.
We are doing all we can to procure as many mushrooms and varieties as we can. We appreciate your patience and continued business.
