Nut Snack Providers Faced With Tons Of Unwanted Product As Airlines Cut Flights

August 26, 2020: 12:00 AM EST
The coronavirus pandemic has forced airlines to reduce flights and limit onboard services to cut costs. These changes have affected a variety of companies that support the airline industry, including suppliers of nut mixes to first-class passengers. They have been stuck with a glut of unneeded products at risk of spoilage. For example, GNS Foods, a woman-owned, family business that supplies United Airlines, was stuck with more than fifteen tons of warehoused baggies of mixed nuts and raw ingredients. The company has turned to retail channels, selling its goods at what it says are "near-cost" prices. Nut lovers can find two-pound bags of the Elite Status mix (that's whole cashews and whole almonds) for $7.99 on the company's online storefront, and of the Elite Status Hawaii mix (whole cashews, whole almonds, and large whole macadamia nuts) for $10.99, a lot less than the prices at Whole Foods Market.[Image Credit: © GreatNuts.com]
