Food Shortages Are The Next Supply-Chain Crunch

Bloomberg: ‘People Are Hoarding’: Food Shortages Are The Next Supply-Chain Crunch 

(Bloomberg) -- In Denver, public-school children are facing shortages of milk. In Chicago, a local market is running short of canned goods and boxed items. 

But there’s plenty of food. There just isn’t always enough processing and transportation capacity to meet rising demand as the economy revs up. 

More than a year and a half after the coronavirus pandemic upended daily life, the supply of basic goods at U.S. grocery stores and restaurants is once again falling victim to intermittent shortages and delays. 

 “I never imagined that we’d be here in October 2021 talking about supply-chain problems, but it’s a reality,” said Vivek Sankaran, chief executive officer of Albertsons Cos., who echoed the laments of other retailers. “Any given day, you’re going to have something missing in our stores, and it’s across categories.”

WNU Editor: At the start of the pandemic a number of people asked me on what they should invest in. 

I said precious metals, products that preppers like to have, essential household products, and on the top of my list .... food.

Living in earthquake land [CA], I have been putting aside enough canned and packaged food for about two weeks for years now. Lots of large candles and matches, some paper items. Water.
This whole fiasco is for the most part political, methinks.

Thank goodness Fauci is head mask person in biden's circus and not food distribution.

One year ago we didn't have this problem even we didn't have a vaccine.
The vaccine come just in time for Biden administration....and we have the same problem as the beginning of the pandemic...the shelves problem was fixed by the Trump administration.

It's not panic buying or hoarding when there's governments around the world violating human rights, killing people left and right by denying them life saving information and medication. Camps being built.

If you haven't stocked up, I can almost predict you "voted " Democrat or still think CNN is news lol

We're at war and have been for years.
Our war is economical, cultural and informational, peppered with biological and informational terrorism.

I would like to declare CNN as informational terrorists causing mass death around the world but specifically in the United states.

If you survive the next 2 years, you'll see I'm right.

Good luck.
