World Food Prices Have Set a New Record
World food prices reached their highest level ever recorded in January and are set to keep rising, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations warned on Thursday. The hardest-hit countries may be facing widespread turmoil as a result.
Rising food prices are among the driving forces behind recent revolts in North Africa, including the uprising in Egypt and the toppling of Tunisia’s long-time president, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.
“The new figures show that the upward pressure on world food prices is not easing, and likely to continue,” FAO’s grain expert Abdolreza Abbassian said in a statement.
What does this mean for you and your family? For me, this meant taking control of my family’s destiny and storing food and water. Thereby avoiding the experience of not being able to buy food later at the grocery store.
Food may not always be available or affordable in the US. Most economists say that we will see runaway hyperinflation in the US, and when it hits, we will likely not be able to afford to buy food.
Even Donald Trump is saying that we will probably be paying $25.00 for a loaf of bread. However, if hyperinflation hits like it did in the Weimar Republic in Germany during the 1920s, then a pound of bread will cost the US Dollar equivalent of 3 Billion Marks.
I do not want my family to go hungry, so I have planned ahead and stored some food and water.
Since you are considering storing a supply of emergency food, you should know this:
Demand for emergency food is at an all-time high. Demand for freeze dried food from Mountain House Food is especially high. Order now while wait times are still reasonable.
