As you already have heard, corn and soybean production has decreased exponentially due to the drought this year.
Corn and soybeans go into just about everything that we consume, including food and fuel, which means we will see more shortages of other foods and prices increasing across the board in 2013.
The most recent industry to be hit by the corn and soybean shortage? Pork.
According to Britain’s National Pig Association, pork production will be significantly cut this year due to a lack of feed that would come from the two crops mentioned above.
Those numbers also assume that there won’t be a global outbreak of diseased animals like we have seen more and more of over the past few years…
If you want to eat bacon in 2013, you may want to stock up on it now, or get ready to dig deeper into your pockets.
It just seems as if things are getting worse by the day…
How are you preparing for potential food shortages? We want to know!
