This one's a cracker

Turkish Jews will have enough matzah for Pesach this year after the import quota of unleavened bread from Israel to the country was raised from 15 tons to 45 tons.

Until now, the community’s major supplier of unleavened bread was a bakery in Istanbul’s Sishane neighbourhood whose 50-year-old oven was constantly breaking down. So it turns out that you just can’t get the parts these days, but it may not matter as much as it used to.
