About This Webinar

Episode 02: Honey, Nuts, & Oats

Rise and shine! Breakfast and nutritional bars are only complete when honey, nuts, and oats are included. McKeany-Flavell’s next Hot Ingredient webinar will focus on these tasty staples. Viewers will gain insight into current market factors and how conditions may change over the next year.

It has been a crazy year for honey after a U.S. government anti-dumping lawsuit against multiple major exporters. Meanwhile, the almond and walnut industries have also been busy: As nut demand rises, California growers plant far and wide, hoping for sufficient rains.

And speaking of water, U.S. oats could have used some last season as a drought slashed production to the lowest levels since Abraham Lincoln was president and prices were pennies on the dollar. Honestly, will pouring oat milk into morning coffee ever be economically feasible again?

Take a healthy break from your work and join us on Dec. 15 to discuss how to procure the ingredients for the perfect porridge, the greatest granola bar, and many other delicious products at the right price.
