The effects of the ongoing strike at Purity Factories are hitting Labrador hard.
Many of the products manufactured by Purity are considered staples in the diet of many Labradorians.
Steve Schultz is the buyer for Labrador Investments on the north coast of Labrador.
Schultz is currently in Nain assisting with operations until a new manager is hired.
He says they’ve been receiving calls from people all over Labrador searching for Purity Hard Bread.
Nain is now the only community in Nunatsiavut and the Upper Lake Melville that has the fish-n-brews necessity.
There have even been calls from people in Cartwright searching for Purity hard bread.
But the community’s stock of hardtack is nearly out.
Another Purity product found on the tables of many Labradorians is Cream Crackers.
Schultz assures everybody that they have enough of the product in stock in each of their stores to make it through the winter.
Purity Factories employees have been on strike since early-September.
