.....the story focuses on maple syrup providers....have had hard time finding same old jugs.....have had to constantly switch from plastic, to glass, etc......so it will be harder to find a nice set of jugs.....


Vermont Maple Producers Facing Jug Shortage Will ‘Go With the Flow'

Sugarers have had to adjust their package styles, in many cases, because they couldn’t secure enough of their original orders

....As maple syrup producers prepare for the start of their season, many are reporting that they’ve faced challenges sourcing needed materials — including product packaging.

At Branon Family Maple Orchards in Fairfield Vermont, Cecile Branon said securing large supplies of her typical maple jugs has been a hassle lately.

"We’re all in the same boat," Branon said of her fellow maple syrup producers, adding that sourcing plastic jugs has been really tough both this year and last year.

Branon explained she was left using several different styles of container, all for the same syrup.

"We’ve had to switch from plastic jugs to glass — then the glass got scarce, and we were able to find plastic," Branon recalled. "None of our jugs are the same."

The explanations she and other sugarers are getting should sound familiar by now: staffing challenges at container manufacturers and shippers, on top of shortages of certain raw materials — namely, resin.

"People needed to order early and also maybe search a little farther than they normally would for a supplier," said Vermont Agriculture Secretary Anson Tebbetts, recounting stories he has heard from across the maple industry.

Tebbetts said he is also aware of maple producers having to scramble to make their own labels because custom-printed jugs couldn’t come in time.

"They’ll make it happen," Tebbetts said of maple producers as they enter their season. "They’ll just have to work a little harder at making it all work."

Tebbetts praised Vermont maple producers, both for their output — which leads all other maple-producing states in the U.S., by far — and for the quality of their syrup.

Erin Sigrist, the executive director of the Vermont Specialty Food Association, asked consumers to stay patient and stick with their favorite local products through possible packaging hiccups......

I'll be making my annual trip out next month (often just to W. MA, not VT) and I'll take my own jugs if necessary!

Why are the classic tin flasks not an option?

I hear that's pretty common.

Some of the companies that made them have gone out of the business. Getting the tinned steel also can be a problem lately, the large makers of canned products often are ahead of them in the supply chain.

I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
