Libby’s Warns of Canned Pumpkin Shortage

 __________________





17 Nov 09 - We may run out of canned Libby’s pumpkin before Thanksgiving, warns Paul Bakus, vice president for Nestlé’s baking division.

Heavy rains in the Midwest left soggy fields in their wake, making it difficult for farmers to put their harvesting equipment in the fields. The harvest usually begins in August, but acres of pumpkins still lie in the fields unharvested. It is likely many of those pumpkins will be plowed under, says this article by Kim Severson.

“But what’s bad news for commercial growers in the Midwest has been good news for organic pumpkin concerns on the West Coast,” says Severson. “Organic pumpkin makes up only about 3 or 4 percent of the overall canned pumpkin market, but in Oregon the crop was so good that organic pumpkins are able to fill at least a little of the gap.”

          Didn't I say something about fighting in the streets for food long before
          we're covered by ice?
