Food suppliers hide rising food prices behind shrinking packages, reports Vanessa Ho for the Seattle Big Blog. “A can of Chicken of the Sea albacore tuna is now packed at 5 ounces, instead of the 6-ounce version still on some shelves, and in some cases, the 5-ounce can costs more than the larger one,” points out the original New York Times report.
Note: As energy prices rise, pressure builds for fishermen and all other food suppliers to hike prices. But the F/V St Jude won’t change the size of its 6-ounce can. And by the way, did you know that it takes about 15 ounces of raw fresh product to fill that 6-ounce St Jude can?
