While we saw strong consumer demand, we also continued to experience industry-wide supply chain issues, which impacted our ability to fully meet customer orders for support this consumption. Starting in the 3rd quarter, our business was impacted by rising prices for key ingredients and components, logistical challenges in all modes of transportation delaying receipt of goods, and continued labor shortages.

Additionally, we have re-routed some of our freight, significantly increased labor at our manufacturing facilities, and brought in additional suppliers for key materials and components, resulting in increased production levels of manufacturing at the dawn of 2022.
