Vendor Surveys

As always, thank you to the 221 Vendors who responded to the Vendor survey sent out in January. Your responses allowed us to learn more about continuing supply chain issues posed by COVID and other concerns facing Vendors. Please see an overview of Vendor responses below:

  • 60% of respondents cited experiencing staffing shortages and the most common strategies used to combat this problem
  • 56% of respondents said they are not having any difficulty sourcing WIC-approved foods (not including formula). 
  • The top four foods that respondents reported were hardest to source were cereal (31%), whole grains (28%), infant fruits and vegetables, and juice (both 22%).
