(DAILY CAMERA) — As many on the East Coast fret over organic milk shortages and notice bare patches in their dairy aisles, retailers in Boulder vary in their levels of concern.
“Right now, we have an adequate supply,” said Kelli McGannon, director of public affairs for King Soopers. “We are not anticipating a shortage at this time.”
Both Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage and Alfalfa’s Market have enough product to meet current demands — but express more concern, particularly about a projected $1 spike in prices.
“I think our consumer is buying the milk that is available,” said Laura Perkins, director of purchasing for Natural Grocers, which only sells organic milk products. “I’m hoping that we can keep prices consistent right now and get more producers so that they help meet supply and demand.”
