A Message from Our CEO

To our customers,

As we progress through the year, we continue to see improvement in the global supply chain.

Last year’s supply chain issues caused a near triple digit backlog at U.S. ports, causing major delays in product delivery. With orders now arriving at a more manageable rate, ports and rails have been able to steadily recover.

Crop news remains steady, with a positive outlook for Kalamata olives sourced from Greece. We will have more to report as we come upon busy harvest seasons.

At Roland Foods we strive to stay up to date on the global supply chain. Below are actions we are taking to ensure customer satisfaction:

1. Improvement of logistic efficiencies – We continue to see progress in the global supply chain, particularly with import volumes at U.S. ports. We are actively partnering with ocean carriers that provide the best services to get products to you in a timely manner.

2. A consistent pulse on crop harvests – There are no new new major crop issues to report on this month. Dijon mustard supply continues to be impacted due to crop shortages and geopolitical hardships, but our procurement team remains in communication with our partners regarding this year’s outlook on the category. Across categories, our supply chain and procurement teams continue to work tirelessly with our partners to stay ahead of any future crop complications.

To stay abreast of the most up-to-date and in-depth details regarding supply chain, freight, and crop updates, please read our Market Updates provided below. As always, thank you for your business.
