Due to high demand, Ramar Foods announces a shortage on its ube (purple yam) supply. Purple Yam has been the popular comfort food for the diaspora and has been enjoyed in several ice cream flavors under Ramar's Magnolia brand. The all-natural ube supply is experiencing a shortage. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and surges in grocery, the supplies are going to be limited.
As the company is adjusting to its challenges in the ube supply, Ramar Foods will continue to evenly distribute the product to Asian stores within the United States to make sure that they can fulfill the needs of their customers, especially during this time of the pandemic.
Ramar Foods continues to be the only Filipino Food manufacturer in the United States that brings all-natural ube in its products. The all-natural ube is imported straight from the Philippines and is not available anywhere else. The challenges in supply come from the high demand in the Asian American market, logistics, and supply issues caused by COVID-19.
Ramar Foods is working hard to make sure it can safely go back to the normal supply of all-natural ube once the company figures out a way to do it safely in this environment. Ramar Foods will be keeping its communities updated regarding the ube shortage.
