Over the past week, the unprecedented rainfall and flooding experienced across NSW and SEQ have left many farmers, suppliers, and local producers with limited supplies of specific product lines. Therefore, placing extra reliance on interstate supply chains and distributors has been strained further due to the increased cost of transportation (fuel) and unsafe roads.
We chatted with our network of suppliers and industry experts about how the recent flood will impact prices, quality and the availability of specific produce, mainly fruit & veg and meat, over the coming months.
Overall, the extreme weather increases transportation costs, and the availability of products will directly impact the supply, pricing and quality of certain goods, including fruit & veg and meat.
While some suppliers may have temporarily limited delivery zones as they deal with flood damage and start the recovery process. Below are some tips on how you can easily adapt your menu to suit what produce is available.
