As we mentioned earlier, The US has been suffering a great cauliflower shortage and now there’s a Canadian cauliflower crisis too. The price of cauliflower has skyrocketed as growers can’t keep up with growing demand in the midst of bad weather conditions.
Why the growing demand? Well cauliflower is a highly popular part of low-carb and Paleo dishes, instead of rice or pasta. It’s perhaps the #1 most popular vegetable for low-carb chefs.
The price of cauliflower heads have gone up by roughly 140%, and Canadians have taken to Twitter, expressing their dislike of this particular trend.
Welcome to Canada in 2016, where money costs nothing, oil costs less and a cauliflower costs nine dollars.
