« on: April 19, 2020, 03:14:32 PM »
Can we see issues come up with esrogim/lulavim being that so many come from abroad?

Even if there aren't issues, it will be given as a reason for high prices...

Either way, that's too far from now to predict.

Look in Msí Sukkah chapter 4 mishna 4 regarding rabbanim making a takana to stay home rather than taking lulav to bais hamikdash

Heard that Italian Esrogim won't be effected, since Calabria where they grow is on Italy's southern tip at the other end of the outbreak.

Not sure about sukkos. But food basics might be a shortage in the next few weeks. Spoke today to a large distributor his words.

Probably due to plants shutting down, low amount of truckers etc vs a real food shortage.

Yup. People are sick.
No truckers manufacturers are closed or operating at minimal capacity.
Least will have is increased price for food or worst case scenario non at all.

The distributions still had/have in stock shelf stable items to last 2-3 months but if there is no new products delivered. Then will feel it in our own local grocery stores.

Last I checked the death rate for the esrogim were very low so the supply should not be affected.

Also given that Esrogim tend to cut themselves off the tree and then nicely pack themselves into boxes and onto shipping containers, without any human intervention, they probably won't be affected. Another plus is that the stay home orders were given only to humans, fruits got a waiver. All in all things look positive B"h.

Now you understand why itís the custom to pray for an esrog way back on Tu Shvat...

The fancy sellers go to Calabria themselves to the Esrog orchards they have relationships with to hand-pick you an Esrog. They travel especially each year for a fancy photo shoot showing them examining the Esrogim on the trees with magnifying glasses. Not sure itís a given that theyíll be able to travel to Calabria this year.

this is my business.... We are slowly seeing manufacturers (mostly smaller ones) begining to close. Either due to lower demand (no food service) or because to many employees are in isolation... (Think empire poultry)

farms are still harvesting...
On a side note, if consumers saw "social distancing" and face covering practices at some relatively large manufacturers, they be pretty shocked. I was at a produce supplier and fish plant just before pesach and what we saw was almost all employees wearing their facemasks on their chins since it's uncomfortable. Hopefully covid19 doesn't survive long on produce or fish(lots of sushi fish here)

If the matza thread (https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=40116.0) is any indication, you can still brag about how much you paid on DDF.

Due to social distancing, many Chabad shluchim arranged seders to go this year. Will they be sending arba minim in the same way? Might be a spike in demand for basic sets.
