These foods disappeared from grocery stores last year. Now they’re back

At the height of the pandemic last year with restaurants closed and grocery demand soaring, consumer goods manufacturers simplified their supply chains by paring down product offerings and speeding up production lines on their most popular items. This improved companies’ ability to meet demand on key goods but meant that consumers had fewer choices on the shelves when they rushed in to stock up on groceries.

Dan Hofmeister, senior vice president of brand marketing at tuna-maker Bumble Bee, said in an email that its item count has grown 36% to 307 different items since cutting down to a low of 225 last year.
“As demand begin to normalize, we began phasing in temporarily suspended” items, Hofmeister said. Bumble Bee has recently launched new lines of tuna snacks and bowls, as well as white Albacore in olive oil and new sardine lines.


The company is seeing the most variety expansion in baking, dairy, frozen meals and salty snacks and candy, DeVol said.
“Increased snacking at home is driving the need for innovation as consumers want to try new snacks and treats,” she said.

I have definitely noticed more variety in snacks in super markets. The good thing is that many of them seem to be healthier, i.e. lower in sodium or sugar or higher in fiber. Veggie straws and sun chips are among my favorites.

Foods should be returned to supermarkets only if certain conditions exist. For example, if a food item is damaged or leaking, it should be returned immediately. Perishable foods, such as milk or yogurt, should be returned within a few days of the purchase date. Now I have to go into details where I will read about the essay writers. If the food has an expiration date on the label, it can be returned either before or after the expiration date. Under no circumstances should you return food that has been opened and used for any reason.

^Classic case of someone not even reading the thread, but taking full advantage of commenting and trying to sneak in a bullshit unrelated link. Gotta love the spammers effort.

HAHAHAHA.  I agree.    I have noticed that on occasion I have been able to get some items that had seemed to disappear.  They still do seem to be in short supply.  That makes a lot of sense.

It has been very frustrating to go to the grocery store and the shelves were practically empty and it doesn't seem to be getting better.

There is some stuff missing from stores and it might get worse. You know that Russia/ Ukraine war well between both country's they pretty much control 65-68 percent of the entire worlds wheat. Wheat's used for a lot of things so expect shortages on stuff that is made from wheat products

 It is a compromise when you shop now, you can't find your favorites, so you make do with whatever is there.  I refuse to buy the expensive brands just because my store brand is either sold out or not shipping.  I just go without or make do with something close.

Military aircraft arrives in U.S. with baby formula from Europe amid shortage
78,000 pounds of formula landed in Indiana on Sunday after President Joe Biden authorized a program to import formula from abroad.
“Typically, the process to transport this product from Europe to U.S. would take two weeks. Thanks to Operation Fly Formula, we cut that down to approximately three days,”

Remember in the beginning of the pandemic there were a few shelves that were low. Now in 2022 not so bad at least here in ca.

Thanks for sharing. I am also noticing more healthier varieties of snacks on shelves and more disclosure on health contents.
