The latest food news is udderly devastating…
After a historical year of uncertainty and change, it looks like we have yet another price surge to expect, and it’s certainly not going to help Make America Grate Again. Brace yourself for the anticipated skyrocketing of the price of Parmesan cheese! 😭
While you may have noticed an increase in the price of other types of cheese due to the increased cost of production and delivery during the Covid 19 pandemic, Parmesan prices have remained fairly constant. The time is approaching for that to change.
The delay in the increase is due to the fact that Parm needs to be aged for at least 10 months, so all of the cheese that was produced about 10 months ago is going to start to be distributed in the next couple of months and we’re all about to pay the price.
Experts are predicting that we will see a reasonably large price increase by April of this year and we should be prepared for it to last for about six months with the price of Parmesan estimated to jump about $1.50 to $2 per pound – YIKES!
If your family is particularly fond of Parmesan, it might be worth stocking up now before the surge. Parmesan has a shelf life of 7-9 months when it remains sealed which may be just enough time to ride out what is predicted to be a legen-dairy price hike!
