Food Supply Shortages Now A Possibility…Could Be Sooner Than You Think

Though the coronavirus outbreak is starting to flatten out a little bit, and while we may start trending down, we’re definitely not out of trouble yet. There is still much more to come.

One problem we’re likely to encounter is a possible food shortage, especially when it comes to meat and specifically pork.

Smithfield, one of the country’s largest pork suppliers had been hit hard with the virus. Many employees at the South Dakota facility have contracted the virus.

At first they were just going to close down for a few days and clean and sanitize equipment, but now they’re closing the doors indefinitely.

According to The Daily Mail:

The CEO of Smithfield Foods has claimed the country’s meat supply is at risk as the company is forced to close one of the country’s largest pork processing facilities until further notice due to the coronavirus.

The facility in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, is closing as a number of its employees have fallen ill with Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, and is one in a list of plants that have shut down during the crisis.

More than 11 meat packing and processing plants have now been closed in North America because of the impact of coronavirus, raising serious concerns about the supply chain in the U.S. and its ability to keep shelves stocked.

According to Smithfield, the plant accounts for 4 to 5 percent of the country’s pork production. It supplies nearly 130 million servings of food per week, or about 18 million servings per day. 

“The closure of this facility, combined with a growing list of other protein plants that have shuttered across our industry, is pushing our country perilously close to the edge in terms of our meat supply,” CEO Kenneth Sullivan said in a statement on Sunday.

“It is impossible to keep our grocery stores stocked if our plants are not running. These facility closures will also have severe, perhaps disastrous, repercussions for many in the supply chain.”

The company had been operating during the pandemic to keep the supply on the shelves. Obviously, they didn’t do it the right way and now they’re going to pay dearly for it.

“We believe it is our obligation to help feed the country, now more than ever. We have a stark choice as a nation: we are either going to produce food or not, even in the face of COVID-19”

It’s not only meat that people are worrying about, but all types of food may be impacted ranging from fruits, vegetables, dairy products, and more and this could all happen very soon.

REVOLUTION! Bernie Staffers REVOLT After Sanders Does the Unthinkable!

Even though there is but one Democrat left to run against President Trump in the coming election, the Democratic party as a whole is still divided heavily and I don’t believe that there is anything that they can do before the election to fix this.

As we are now only 7 months away from the general election, the Democrats have proved that they are still bitter from Hillary Clinton’s loss in 2016. She even colluded with the DNC to rig the nomination and to prevent Bernie Sanders from getting the nomination.

Roger Stone: Bill Gates Likely Created COVID-19 to Microchip People

Anyone who has questioned Bill Gates and his motives in the past have been labeled a conspiracy theorist. However, is it really so far fetched to question a man who advocates depopulating the planet?

On Monday, Roger Stone suggested that Bill Gates likely created, or paid to create, the COVID-19 coronavirus so that he could microchip people via vaccine. Considering Gates is funding a corona vaccine, pushes vaccines, and pushes digital ID (look up ID2020), I believe it!
