Today we’re looking at what’s happening in the food supply chain between the farm and the grocery store. Ryan Dietz is the president and co-owner of Heartland Produce. They distribute produce to grocers and processors in the Upper Midwest – about half of their business is in Wisconsin. The food comes from all over the world right to their facility in Kenosha. He says the trucking strains have eased since last year, but other input costs, weather, and other factors worldwide are keeping food prices up. The other part of Heartland Produce’s business is retail support, such as helping grocers with advertising or in-store demos. Dietz shares trends he's seeing among grocery stores AND federal food share programs.
