Supermarket Perimeter - August 2022 - 28

BY ANDY NELSON
RESTAURANTS MAY BE OPEN AGAIN after their COVID-imposed closures,
but many Americans are still eating at home more because of the money they
realized they could save vs. restaurants. Soaring gas prices and higher inflation
in general has only made them more likely to pick at-home dining.
" I think retail demand for eating at home is still very strong, " said Tom
Cavanaugh, vice president of sales and marketing for West Newbury, Mass.based
Gardner Pie. " Even if the prices of a center-plate item and a slice of pie
are the same, there's no alcohol, no tip, the gas to get there and back, so it's
still lower. "
While inflation and supply chain snafus have affected most corners of the
food industry, makers of pies sold in grocery instore bakeries face a unique
challenge in addition to those common ones: lower industry capacity due to
several large producers leaving the market.
In the past, those problems could have been met with a hiring surge,
Cavanaugh said. In today's super-tight labor market, however, that's usually
not an option.
" People making X in a manufacturing job can make the same amount
working in a retail job that's easier, " he said.
The labor crunch poses another problem for Gardner: many of the cherries,
apples and other fruits that go into the company's fresh fruit pies are going
unpicked because of an agricultural labor shortage.
Despite all of those hurdles, however, instore pie sales are still up,
Cavanaugh said.
Gardner has had to streamline its operations in order to meet that demand,
focusing on its top sellers and limiting experimentation in new products.
