Retailers Concerned About Inflation, Supply Chain Issues for Passover 2023

New York…There is a growing concern amongst retailers that continued inflation will put a damper on the upcoming Passover season. The retailers are mainly concerned that key items like eggs, flour, potatoes, and poultry will be at record levels, surpassing last year’s shocking increases. They seem to be less concerned with supply chain issues saying that many of the SKU’s may already be in stock or that year-round versions were already delivered. One retailer said: “We keep getting shocked by an endless spade of increases which we are mightily trying not to pass along to consumers.” He was also concerned about the possibility of spot shortages of many goods and wondered how high the price of Shmurah Matzah might be this holiday.
