GLOBAL FOOD CRISIS: Major Food Chain Tells Public To Stock Up Now

Published on

The head of a major fast food chain in Ireland is sounding the alarm over concerns that the country may face food shortages this coming winter and has begun telling the general public that they should stock up.

Pat McDonagh, the head of a local fast-food chain Supermac’s, warned the public on Wednesday that Ireland may face food shortages over the coming winter and that individuals should be looking to stock up on non-perishable food.

McDonagh put great emphasis on difficulties to do with fertilizer in the country, the lack of which has the danger of halving farmers’ crop yields, something that has somehow not stopped the likes of Sri Lanka, the Netherlands, and Canada from trying to clamp down on fertilizer use in service of their green agendas.

“I would be concerned… in one sense there could be a little bit of a scarcity of food towards the end of the winter up towards December,” the Supermac’s head told local broadcaster Newstalk.

“The price of, say, cooking oil has nearly doubled in the last six months because most of it comes from the sunflower in Ukraine,” he continued.

McDonagh went on to say that many farmers in the region have had their planting disrupted, while food producers at home have had to do without fertilizer due to high prices, two factors which he said would likely extend difficulties to do with food insecurities, according to Breitbart.

“I would be recommending people to buy a bit of long-life food earlier on,” he also said.

The emphasis the fast-food tsar put on the importance of fertilizer mirrors warnings issued near the beginning of the Ukraine crisis that a shortage of the essential resource could mean a halving of yields, and in turn a seismic rise in the price of food for both the short and medium term.

Breitbart went on to report that despite the obvious importance of growing food to feed people, and the problems which can follow if that supply is disrupted being learned across Europe at the moment, some countries including Sri Lanka, the Netherlands, and Canada, are clamping down on agriculture, including shutting down agricultural land and restricting the use of fertilizer in service of their green agendas.

In Canada, far-left radical Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has put a limit on the number of fertilizers farmers are allowed to use, despite protests from local producers that his restrictions are “arbitrary” and endanger both the livelihoods of farmers as well as food prices for the Canadian citizen. We are now starting to see the effects of his disastrous policies now.

Local publications have started comparing the crackdown on farming underway in the Netherlands, something that has resulted in mass protests from farmers due to the fact the green agenda measures will endanger up to 30 percent of the country’s livestock farms.

Pushed to implement the environmentalist crackdown by the EU, the Dutch government has declared measures that aim to cut the amount of nitrogen pollution in some areas by up to 95 percent, while saying that the fact that some farms will inevitably go out of business is merely part and parcel of the “unavoidable transition”.
