Food Shortages - Happening now or very very soon? 🍌

WCS FOOD shortages nearing?

A double whammy of staffing shortages and serious inflation are already in play in the food processing and retails sectors for food in general, it is starting to look very global and may be about to hit hard by revealing itself via empty shelves.

Some recent signals have indicated it beings 3/4 weeks, others August, mainly this year, this is the year. This is the year for a lot of things.

A quick recap of my post from MAY this year.

A topic I’ve been meaning to create for months. The shortage signals have been brewing for 2/3 years, obvisluy stronger last year but in earnest this year much more gnashing of teeth online anecdotally.

Learning to accept long queues, massive disruptions to freedoms and access to places and services, people and so on. Overnight we entered Russia 90’s style queues. Simulation. Training. Conditiong.

The lockdown created a simulated shortage, think of 2020 like a training exercise for 2021.

Extrapolate forward a little but. Think about the Provid Regime and how they deal with things. The reflex is to attack, censor or super injuct legal junk full force against the truth, the truth of shortages, the truth of things running out. How do they react?

Imagine, of all the things, imagine there is a shortage of food.

Imagine you are faced with the current Regime in tighter and higher circumstances.

How do you rate your chances.

How do you think society will perform and behave?

Ireland is not a prepper friendly place. In fact it’s always been a very locked down kind of expression of a Republic. See Housing mess. See People who created housing mess. Gain power again at height of housing mess #2 - How does this happen? Ask self. HOW?

Now fantasy societal collapse time - Let’s put them in charge of food shortage Worse Case Scenario.

No one would in their right mind (a rare commodity these days sadly) but there they are, in position. Ready and waiting.

Are you an essential eater or a non-essential eater ?

Recent UK industry News

Chronic driver shortages have been compounded by shortfalls across other low-paid sectors including harvesting, manufacturing and packaging, and the supply chain is creaking under the pressure.

Trade bodies, logistics firms and suppliers all warn that the continued reopening of the economy combined with the start of the summer holidays will see a tipping point in supermarkets’ ability to keep shelves fully stocked.

“The real crisis for food supplies starts now,” said Shane Brennan, CEO of the Cold Chain Federation, adding that while he was typically wary of empty shelf warnings, “this time definitely feels different”.

He called on government to act rapidly to ease restrictions on foreign workers entering the UK. “Our food industry is in a full-blown crisis. We need the workers to help produce, pack and distribute.”

Globalist built economy is easily taken down by those who built it - The root of this issue for Ireland may be many seasonal and transitory workers in this group got up and left because they had a home country to go to, while some may be happy with the Pup, I would wager most got up and left to take their chances at home or elsewhere and yet the Irish Gov have shown their loyalty, or was it really pragmatic, since strawberries is the nation staple food after all. it’s al own way from potatoes you were reared.

Also keep in mind the recent cyberattack taking out massive meat processing plant in the US, some think was a test run for a wider exercise, add that into a very weakened Just-In-Time economic model and the Schwabs of this world won’t have enough pinkies to celebrate.

Yea I know the sun is shinning outside but the WAR is not over.

You can choose to seek yesterday today, be happy with the now, or seek tomorrow today. :banana: It is up to you which illusion you choose to suffer but suffer we shall and live to suffer some more! :wink: :dipso:.:cloud_with_rain: :sun_with_face: :banana:

There have also been huge pressures on global supply chains with economies getting up and running after the effective coronavirus shutdown - as well as factors like the Suez canal having been blocked months ago.

Got to have some impact in Ireland. Same sort of mania seen in the supermarkets in March 2020

In the face of the chaos, ministers seem to be on the verge of agreeing to shore up the numbers of HGV drivers by granting temporary visas to EU nationals - something that retailers and industry have been demanding for months but they previously resisted.

Environment Secretary George Eustice is thought to have been pushing for the move along with Cabinet Office minister Steve Barclay. Mr Shapps, who has previously been sceptical saying that businesses should pay Britons more to take the jobs rather than rely on cheap labour from abroad, struck a notably softer tone in interviews this morning. Kwasi Kwarteng is also seemingly lowering objections to a time-limited change.

Nobody tell the Gombeen lobby groups of Ireland

How can the diary factory go down with the fire???
The best Irish organic Greek Style Yogurt and goat’s milk btw. They shouldn’t be going that corporate way of multiproduct with lower quality they started 10 years ago.
I was using their Greek Yogurt as inflation factor. Kept the quality for years. The price went up from 1.99 to 2.99 and the weight down from 500g to 450g.

Just got a message from a friend in Switzerland where the goverment have emergency food pamphlets at the supermarket informing customers to have enough food and water for a least one week due to the omnicron bollox and something about no staff to operate transport etc. Anyone noticing less supplies at the supermarket? :thinking:

Wife said so earlier after visiting a SV outlet, whatever the reason.

My guess is they are just firing up the old civil defense procedures. Or reminding people of what they are. Just checked here and nothing that new. Just the usual Swiss civil defense notices,

Might also be a canton level publication. I know during the Cold War some cantons took Civil Defense a lot more seriously than other. Especially those on the borders. First sign of trouble and those borders were sealed. Often with demolition charges on the tunnels and passes. The rest with some very deep minefields. and serious amounts of barbed wire.

Funny people, the Swiss.

As for now, probably just getting ready for the disruption when Ukraine kicks off and the gas pipelines are shut down.

COVID-19: Outbreak Of Virus In Deer Population Could Be Trouble For Humans, Scientists Say

For the first time, researchers are uncovering disconcerting evidence that COVID-19 is spreading amongst the deer population, which could spell trouble for humans.

Researchers took nasal swabs from 360 white-tailed deer in the US between January and March 2021 when the number of COVID-19 cases was surging across the country, which found that more than 35 percent were previously infected or dealing with an active case.

Australia meat shortage

Lester Brown (thesis/prediction of rapid industrialization destroying food producing land discussed in video)

Paper; 1994

Book; 1995

I have some cans, rice etc put aside (plus gas cooking ring & cans for it) but wouldn’t last long. Ireland is small though, we do still have a fair few farms I think / hope. Although I’m sure we’ve all heard that fertiliser prices are going up - may affect yields.

Oh look we can organise a two year world wide economic lockdown, wall to wall 24/7 in sync media, manufacture and deliver billions of poisonous injections, and then suddenly, eh, yea about the food thing…

Is it like they know it won’t be needed or something? :thinking:

Yeah, yeah

That has to be a joke! No one wears secondhand underwear these days.
We’re a long way from the “red cross” parcels from England sent home in the 1950s - 70s

Yes, OW. It might not be needed. And if we use the same logic to the quality of majority of housing it shows us it was planned at least 20 years ago.

Who knows, they may have automated tech ready to remove the suburbia and replant it with forests. Dematerializing bulldozers. That’s why the houses were built on flat concrete without a cellar.

Ireland to be like what? 1.5 mln according to Deagel in 2025? I remember USA was estimated at 99 mln before they took that website down.

Coming back to Alan Watt. It’s worth couple of hours of our time to listen to some random podcasts from around 2010. He was saying about this all those years.

I think he was accually in his late 50s. I guess he was suicided.
