Italy's Tomato Harvest Threatened by Can Shortages - Food Supply Chain Failures

• Ice Age Farmer -

Even as shipping experts warn that delays and shortages are intensifying, Italy, one of the world's top tomato producers, warns that the harvest may rot in the fields due to a lack of cans. This is a perfect example of how our FOOD PRODUCTION is just as fragile and "Just-in-Time" as the rest of our supply chain, and is a harbinger of food shortages in the near due to these cascading failures. We must brace for these ongoing and worsening disruptions to our way of life: start growing food and spreading the word now.
