All Scream for Ice Cream


BEDFORD, N.S. — With this summer’s sustained hot weather, many consumers across the country have been flocking to their local ice-cream shop, for a cool, tasty treat. However, if those consumers happen to be in New Brunswick, they may be leaving empty-handed, as a strike at Northumberland Co-operative Dairy’s packing plant, Farmers Dairy in Bedford, N.S., has put a serious crimp in the supply of many popular flavours in the province.

According to CBC News, the strike, which began July 10, has sent Northumberland’s management scrambling to provide alternative flavours as supply dwindles. The shortfall has forced some of its client shops to scope out new suppliers.

Caroline Richard, owner of Cremiere Caro in Moncton, N.B. told the CBC that she understands the difficulty of the situation but admits that if things do not improve she’ll have to call the competitor. “A lot of customers have turned around, because I didn’st have the flavour they wanted,” she explains.
