Food shortages are on the tip of everyone’s tongue lately. What we are to expect? While visiting Brussels for a G7 Summit, U.S. President Biden said the following during a news conference:
- It’s going to be real.
- The price of the sanctions is not just imposed upon Russia.
- It’s imposed upon an awful lot of countries as well, including European countries and our country as well.
So how is the rest of the world reacting to food shortages as a result of the Ukraine-Russia war?
“Rising food prices are ringing alarm bells for households all over the world. UK food banks say they have never been busier. Supermarkets in Italy have reported panic buying. And in Iraq there have been bread price protests.” (Farm Policy News). These warning bells might even make the squirrels hide a few more acorns before winter.
