Upstate Food Co-op Weekly Update 
 July 21 - July 26, 2014

  • Innovation Task Force Update: The task force met for the first time this past Saturday to brainstorm ideas to improve Co-op operations and increase income. The minutes are available here. If you have ideas or want to be involved please contact Theresa Pizzuto or Sara Newton.
  • Large Cooler Needed: Would anyone have a large capacity cooler (100 qt or more) they could donate for Co-op use? Ron Dillon keeps our other large cooler in his vehicle for our weekly milk pick-up, every other week we have a rather large special order and we need the additional capacity for it. Our other large cooler has disappeared. If you can help, please respond to this email or call the Co-op at 868-3105. Thanks!

Upstate Food Co-op Weekly Update 
 July 14 - July 19, 2014

  • Reminder: Our next Manager meeting will be held on Saturday, July 19th at  9:30 am at the Co-op. All are welcome.
  • Large Cooler Needed: Would anyone have a large capacity cooler (100 qt or more) they could donate for Co-op use? Ron Dillon keeps our other large cooler in his vehicle for our weekly milk pick-up, every other week we have a rather large special order and we need the additional capacity for it.

PRODUCT UPDATES
Change in product labels: The labels on these two ONCE AGAIN brand almond butters from UNFI have been changed from RAW to LIGHTLY-TOASTED:
1) ONCE AGAIN ALMOND BUTTER,OG1,RAW,CRUNCHY, 16oz, UNFI#076643-6, UPC#044082-534916  
2) ONCE AGAIN ALMOND BUTTER,OG1,RAW,CREAMY,  16oz, UNFI#029849-7, UPC#044082-534619 
Even though the UNFI product numbers and the UPC numbers have not changed for these two products, apparently the RAW version of these almond butters is no longer available from the ONCE AGAIN company.
  • The difference between Once Again's Lightly Toasted and traditional almond butter rests in the roasting process.  In our traditional almond butter, almonds are roasted and heated until the almonds caramelize. Afterwards, these caramelized almonds are ground into butter to provide a robust, dark color and flavor.   For our Lightly Toasted Almond Butter, almonds are simply dried then milled into a naturally sweet-tasting butter.
  • For more info, go to:  https://www.onceagainnutbutter.com/almond2014/ 

NEW PRODUCTS:
  • Earthworks, food grade, Diatomaceous Dust is back on the shelf.  New easy to store 2.5 pound plastic jar and our usual 1lb. bulk in plastic bags.
