Where are commodities headed in the coming months?
This week’s episode of the Restaurant Business podcast A Deeper Dive features David Maloni, the principal with the consulting firm Datum FS, to talk about where food prices are headed.
Maloni is a recognized expert in commodities forecasting and supply chain issues. We talk about the state of food prices in the U.S. and his projections for costs going forward. In short: Maybe don’t consider marketing a bacon double cheeseburger.
Beef costs are going up and will likely stay there for a while. Maloni discusses why and how long it could take for those prices to ease. We talk extensively about chicken, and why those costs are so cheap. And we talk about other commodities such as pork belly, grain prices and cheese.
We’re talking food costs on A Deeper Dive so check it out.
