Market Curiosity: Exploring Markets And Systems

Go long grub. Mountain House not directly selling #10 cans due to demand

Filed under: Editorials, Systems — Tags: , , , — Jeff Fitzmyers @ 9:26 am

As you know we have removed #10 cans from our website temporarily. The reason for this is sales of #10 cans have continued to increase… We expect this situation to be necessary for several months although this isn’t a guarantee.

Commodities traders have warned they are seeing the first signs of panic buying from states concerned about the political implications of rising prices for staple crops.

Most organisms have energy stores so they can:

  • Live in between feedings (buffer)
  • Protect from mechanical damage (buffer)
  • Be insulated from cold temperatures (buffer)

The Just-In-Time food delivery system have a tiny buffer of about 3 days.

The writing is on the wall: PLEASE HAVE SOME BUFFER.

Feb 3: A post from Freeze Dry Guy

Freeze Dry Guy is well placed with Mountain House Freeze Dried Food Company, and I would like to assure you that all orders placed with our Company are being processed and shipped as quickly as possible. In the last few weeks, Mountain House had to cease shipping food to 92% of their US dealers. As a result, we are now one the few registered Official Mountain House dealers in the USA who are still receiving shipments… I must say that in the 41 years I have been in this business I have never seen anything like this.
