Re: UK food chain about to break. Mainstream media.
Not seen a shortage of a single item here...

We have more pan max capable ports per capita than anywhere else in the world, we pretty much invented global trade.

A US company just last week spent billions buying a grocery store chain here, do you think they would do that if they had nothing to sell?

Mainstream media bullshit. Maybe they are running these stories as they plan on screwing the US.

Food supply chains are “starting to fail” because of workers isolating over coronavirus contacts, an industry leader has warned, as he criticised Boris Johnson’s effort to ease the “pingdemic”.

If people would get back to the basics of growing their own gardens, raising their own livestock and preserving food this wouldn't be an issue

Not many know how to do that anymore

50 pounds of rice should last a person a year. 1/3 cup (dry) per day.

You'd have to supplement that with protein and veggies of course.

50lbs of rice lasts me about 3 months. I'm asian, and it is a staple.

Re: UK food chain about to break. Mainstream media.
Been buying an extra couple of cans of Chunky Soup every time we go to the supermarket for years. We love spam and canned Dak ham, have many cans of the stuff on hand. Have 75 lbs of rice, 30 lbs quinoa, cornmeal, flour, lots and lots of spices, cases of water, gatorade powder drink mix, powdered milk. And that's just for starters. Years worth of tp, paper towels, paper plates.

Just got 50 lb case of boneless skinless turkey thighs for the freezer.

Stocking up for the winter which is just right around the corner.

Covid was a shot across the bow for those still asleep. If that didn't wake people up nothing will. Anyone not putting back some supplies during this little break in the action is loony tunes.

If you aren't a prepper and haven't memorised 10 items you can forage, well, do it now. Today.

Have you seen the black friday rioting to get a cheap tv? Scale that up 1000X for a food shortage.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 78911905


On the plus side, the riots won't last that long, gonna be difficult to riot while starving. Hopefully, they stupidly stay and burn down the cities along with the petrol stations and make leaving harder. The only thing I fear in this scenario is that they wise up and leave the big cities quickly looking for food, unlikely though. I expect by the time they realize that food isn't grown in Tescos it will be too late.

That is all you have? And it peasants gruel on top of it. I have only the finest foods money can buy and are much wider selection stocked too compared to your severely limited menu of commoner 'vittles' Jethro or whatever your commoner name is.

Supermarkets are fine, the Daily Mail's scaremongering was shot down the moment it appeared. Look at the comments.

"There's an air of despondency creeping through the industry really. Until now we've managed to keep the food supply chain running but there's a sense of we're starting to fail on that front," he told BBC Radio 4's Today program.

Asked if production lines are stalling, he said: "They are. It's happening already. We're starting to see that at retail level and in restaurants - everyone is struggling to get things out really."

said his order is a month late, used the two we had making
Pickles, also noticed that there are not a lot of spices

I actually found some online this morning, good price so i stocked up, i live rural and it's canning time so that might have something to do with some items not in stock? we have been getting anywhere between 20 and 50 cucumbers every two days for weeks, sold some to the local produce stand, gave a lot away, we have put up 3 gallons of Pickles so far and might do another, also put up sweet pickles and relish, the produce stand is also buying our Squash and cabbage for re-sale, will probably sell them a hundred pounds of Potatoes when i get around to digging some or do what we did last year and trade Potatoes for Peaches and Apples, the Critters have put a hurting on our Apple trees again this year.
