Hugh: Sriracha Shortage Anticipated
Written by Hugh Campbell on June 13, 2022
Huy Fong Foods recently released a letter suggesting a Sriracha shortage may be coming due to a pepper shortage. The peppers used to make the tasty sauce come from Mexico, which is currently experiencing a drought. The company calls the shortage “unprecedented” and won’t be accepting new orders from distributors until September.
People are starting to have difficulty finding the sauce in stores, and there may be a limit to how many bottles you can purchase. The company specifically points to unexpected crop failure from the spring harvest and hopes to resume normal production in the fall.
