Image: Food shortages are widespread and have gotten worse during the pandemic

(Natural News) The supply chain crisis being faced by supermarkets is far worse than indicated by mainstream media. While many insist on “temporary” shortages, an industry insider has revealed that things are worse than expected.

According to the unnamed insider, things are as bad as he’s ever seen, saying that he has “never seen anything close to what is happening now.”

In an email, the insider said that his supplier has limited orders for about a month. Meat pricing is “fair” but the prices have skyrocketed. Despite ordering normal quantities, suppliers are usually unable to completely fulfill the orders. Shortages are widespread, and it has gotten worse during the entire pandemic.

Other types of retailers are facing severe supply shocks as well, for instance, prescription drugs are in short supply.

In the first half of 2021, many optimistic economists have assured people that the U.S. economy would be booming by the second half. Instead, the economic infrastructure is being shaken on a very basic level, with most of the country facing enormous price hikes and shortages.

Food shortages linked to lack of truck drivers

In the U.K., people are also looking into shortages in the food industry — meaning consumers may not be able to find the products that they prefer in supermarkets.

Food and Drink Federation head Ian Wright said at an event that the “just-in-time system” is no longer working. He warned that the U.K. was in for permanent shortages, although this does not mean that the country will run out of food anytime soon.

A spokesman for the government said the U.K. has a highly resilient food supply chain that was able to cope well with unprecedented challenges.

“We are taking steps to support businesses tackle a range of issues, from the pandemic to a Europe-wide shortage of heavy goods vehicle (HGV) drivers.”

He also added that the support included expanding Seasonal Workers Pilot to 30,000 visas for workers to go to the U.K. for up to six months, including a package of measures that help tackle the HGV driver shortage by streamlining the process for securing a license.

The FDF represents over 800 food and drinks companies in the United Kingdom. According to Wright, the U.K. shopper and consumer could have expected that just about any product they want to be on the shelf or in the restaurant menu all the time. However, things have changed, and as the sector adapts to structural changes in the labor market, Wright said that firms need to make decisions about the products that need to be prioritized.

Several companies, including supermarkets, pubs and restaurants have blamed the lack of HGV drivers for causing problems in the supply chains, including shortages of some products. Driver shortages have also been blamed on workers leaving the U.K. following Brexit as well as during the pandemic. Tax changes also make it more expensive for drivers in Europe to work or be employed in the United Kingdom.

Even in the U.S., food shortages also come from the shortage of truck drivers. Many industries are struggling to keep and retain workers, including the trucking industry, which is important in the American economy.

A Wichita, Kansas, driver said he worked every stretch of the trucking industry for over 20 years and companies today are offering higher salaries to attract new drivers. However, they still come away with far less money and more time away from home. “Over the roadside, you’re on a 70-hour workweek. You’ve got the newer generation that once they get in there and they’re gone for three or four weeks on the road, and they realize they’re not getting home, they don’t want to do it anymore,” he said.

      These people above run the biggest mob family in the world.
      And yes, they are evil idiots.

      They have me playing the part of

      JASMINE HARTSOOK 178-61-227-92-174 ALW

      My real name is

      SHAWN RODENBOUGH 174-75-231-69-150 ALW

      I’m the only one in this family (that I was forced to marry into) with a real name.
      I’m also the former bookkeeper
      I’m ready to talk

        My life was captured from the outset by Satanists.

        I’ve been given the most horrendous life of mental and emotional
        pain. This is the hard stuff as we all know. We get over broken bones easily, we even brag about our scars, but the emotional stuff lasts forever.

        The people who took care of me, said they were my family and loved me, played the most disgusting life time joke on me. They knew who I was so they kept me close and unaware of who they were… even when I’m the guy running the family books… not an easy trick to pull off, but they did it.

        They all believed their narrative, especially Libby, my concentration camp guard wife… and her real husband is Francis Ford Coppola… A guy who delivered my son.

          I wasn’t the only sacrificial lamb for the family.

          They also planned to sacrifice another young girl in the family name ADDIE DAVIDSON

            The leader of this mob family is a guy named Joseph Van Os. He is the biggest egomaniac in the world… and the biggest asshole.

            JVO keeps tight strings of control on his family members who each have different names. They all act like they’re with completely different families. My wife, for example, never met with her sister who lived on the same island. I never met any of the other spouses at the office I worked for six years… stange. Also strange was the way in which I was kept… isolated from the other workers in the office…

            My life is one big fucking comedy show for these people. They f^ck with me and then they laugh about it behind my back… 50 years of that shit… well I should say 49… the year they planned to crucify was extra special Caine love… Ewe baby… make it hurt so good.

      Pharmacy staff are being exposed to massive amounts of SHEDDING infections.
      My local pharmacist fully clotshotted went to local hospital to never return had to change pharmacies.
      Girls at second pharmacy look like they are have continuous flow and over the last few weeks looking more and more pale and pasty.
      I recommended to one that is obviously sick to get HCQ and crap loads of Vitamins told her to call my doc.
      I have invoked Trump’s right to try so I have a large script on record to adapt to my weekly blood work so they already hate me as I stop by every Monday to order crap that is politically attacked. They are actually angry because as their typical customer is looking really really bad I keep getting stronger. For instance I use Tomoxifin a breast cancer drug to suppress accumulated estrogen as my fat cells die while using HCQ for RA and several Sartan and ACE2 antagonists. The clotshot makers have been publishing bullcrap articles on Sartans (because the French proved they prevent CV), thye have attacked HCQ because it works and they attacked Aliniea a cyst drug because it removes the spike protein.
      Their typical customer at 60 looks like they are 100 I look like I am 35 but with white hair I can tell they are pissed off because they argue every script.
      All of my scripts dosage instructions are AS NEEDED this drives them crazy.

      Another Situationy Update ™ from Pfizer, er Mikey (my apologies Mikey this time). :lol:

      According to one article, it’s the UNIONS that are starving US out with outdated equipment at the docks so they can pay the average dock worker $117,000 a year and they said Bitem caved to the UNIONS.

      So, it’s the gawddamn GREEDY unions, again and their taxes, er dues they pay that empowers their bosses to act like tyrants. The same thing government does by TAXING you illegally and empowering them to be tyrants.

      Mole Bitem could easily order the UNIONS to change or be fired, BUT he didn’t do that. Only FARCING us to get JABBED for a JOBBED. We have a good thing going here but you are determined to bring it down by living an unconstitutional way like other countries that surround you.

      Your fall will be SUDDEN and UGHLEE but you’ll have it NO UDDER way and I’m outta here quarter way…… :lol:
