Kendall B’s Say What? – A Mustard Shortage This Summer?
Uh oh. You’d better stock up on mustard!
There could be a shortage of the zesty condiment this summer.
The shortage stems from a bleak mustard seed harvest in Canada (the world’s #1 producer of mustard seeds) because of severe hot weather.
Poor growing conditions in France have made the problem even worse along with the war in Ukraine, another top region for mustard seeds.
One mustard producer calls the current shortage “unprecedented” with production down at least 50%.
