Food Shortage in Britain
Food Shortages in the UK: There is a shortage of food in Britain at this time. It is being said that instead of reducing this problem, it will only increase. In the matter, the chief of a trade association warned that the days of getting practically anything off supermarket shelves are over and shoppers will face constant food shortages. Food and Drink Federation chief executive Ian Wright said that this does not mean that people will have to go hungry.
According to Wright, the reason behind this crisis is a shortage of lorry drivers and about half a million people working in the fields, which is affecting the supply chain (Will There be Food Shortages UK). He said that due to shorter working hours and higher wages, most lorry drivers are working for online shops such as Amazon and Tesco. In addition, many workers are EU citizens who were forced to leave the UK after the pandemic and Brexit. He said, ‘This problem will only increase and then there is no possibility of getting cured soon.’
Bottled water shortage in England
Due to labor shortages, the just-in-time system that keeps supermarkets, service stores and restaurants afloat has ensured that food items are available on the shelf or in their kitchens whenever people need them (UK Food Shortage Brexit). Bottled water ran out in the eastern part of England last week. In such a situation, the risk of black marketing has also increased. That is, the goods which are needed, those shopkeepers will also sell to the people at a higher price.
