2020 Presents: Pepperoni Shortage

2020 Presents: Pepperoni Shortage

Making pepperoni is an extremely labor-intensive task to the point where producers would rather just ship out large pieces of meat rather than processing it themselves. As a result, pepperoni has gone from $4/lb to $6/lb.

 

Big chain pizza restaurants haven’t been affected right now as they usually sign long-term contracts, but if the pepperoni supply stays low, these companies will soon have to raise their prices or replace pepperoni with an easier to find ingredient like…. pineapple (?)
