Supply chain issues lead to cream cheese shortage in NYC
The supply chain crisis is leading to a cream cheese shortage in New York City.
everything. If you thought you nearly lost your mind during the shutdown, just remember you had bagels and cream cheese, could you have survived without it? That's kind of scary. I'll try the best I can. I don't know, like some kind of Andrew yang, Bill de Blasio strangeness, right? But a new york institution is now under threat because of supply chain issues. At Tompkins Square bagels in the East Village and all across the city, there is a cream cheese scare. We have espresso, jalapeno cheddar birthday cake and this will probably get us too about Wednesday. I thought maybe maybe maybe late tomorrow. So what I'm being told from my suppliers, um there's a big issue with trucking getting class eight truckers and we're also being told that the shipping containers because we get these big £100.50 pound blocks. So my guys are telling me those are all like stuck on ships like you know, import the Kraft Heinz company, one of the top producers of cream cheese says not to panic as more people continue to breakfast at home and use cream cheese as an ingredient and Easy desserts. We expect this trend to continue as such. We're shipping 35% more product to foodservice partners, such as bagel shops versus a year ago at Tompkins Square bagels. They've got plans to readjust to hustle scramble. You know, we're new Yorkers, we've been scrambling and hustling for two years now with the pandemic. Like we'll find a way. There's always butter. It's not the same. It's not know, people are gonna get upset. That might be the recipe for anarchy in the city, in the East Village, Stefan kIM Channel seven, Eyewitness News.
