The Soap Tribune, Issue #091--bar soap coupon
February 26, 2022

Inflation continues

I began the inflation discussion last week and will continue it here.

Inflation is hitting the wholesale markets and is coming to a theater to you. Our main ingredient has more than doubled in price, so we have to plan on how to deal with that. Plus commodities are not available and/or are experiencing long time delays. I have been planning for this moment in small business history for a long time, but it's always extra work when it arrives.

Worldwide commodity prices fluctuates constantly. It has to do with a combination of things:

farming and weather conditions

world trade (which we know is under a lot of strain right now)

fuel prices (which continue to rise)

labor issues: on the farms, the processing plants, and at sea

All of these conditions are in hyper action mode all at once.

Ithaca Soap Bars

Support small business

One of my favorite NYS main routes, is driving on the Taconic Parkway, which winds its way up and down the Hudson River.

The Todd Hill Rest Area is a great stop right in the middle of the highway in Poughkeepsi. It's a Taste NY Store filled with NYS grown and produced goods. There's pickles, maple syrup, cookies, fresh produce, frozen meats, prepared food to go like soup and sandwiches, and a nice selection of LiXTiK Lip Balm at the checkout.
