Olive shortage could create substitution risk

greenolivesGreece’s crop of Halkidiki olives is being picked now and could be down by as much as 80% on last year due to bad weather.
Some olive suppliers will struggle to meet existing contracts, with the impact starting to be felt over the coming months.
I recommend checking your raw material specifications to see if you are impacted, and don’t forget compound ingredients.
If you are using I would suggest some more detailed QA checks on intake to ensure supplier compliance with spec.
