Although the worst of the global pandemic is apparently behind us, some unlikely trickle down effects are causing problems in the barbecue sauce world for us little guys. Plastic is in short supply.
When COVID hit, supply chains became screwed up worldwide. This affected plastics production along with most everything else. Then add in the winter storm that hit Texas in February, which shut down many petroleum based plants, and we have an even bigger problem. According to this article in the Harvard Business Review, it may take up to a year to get everything in the plastic supply chain back in balance.
What does this have to do with Swamp Boys BBQ Sauces? It means your favorite retail store may run out for a bit. It means that there are going to be times when we can’t get plastic bottles. It means sometimes when we can get plastic bottles, they may look different than our traditional bottle. It means our glass jars and lids may change – and they have. All nightmares for brands that count on continuity.
Thanks for your patience while we work through some changes. It’s frustrating to not be able to provide our products to everyone who wants it. But we’re trying. And like the rest of the world, we are really looking forward to life being back to normal again. Please stay with us and thanks for your continued support.
