Goya CEO Believes “Global Food Crisis” Is Inevitable
The CEO of Goya Foods, Bob Unanue, joined Maria Bartiromo of Fox Business to express concerns about the “global food crisis” he expects is coming.

Unanue is not the only person sounding the alarm on this issue, as it’s one Tucker Carlson has routinely highlighted on his show, saying “we may not have enough food soon.”
Other companies are starting to feel it as well.
The CEO of Tyson Foods, John Hennigan, told CNBC that the company is “seeing increases in input costs,” and that they are “passing some of those on.”
Hennigan went on to say that they are “also seeing some shortages of certain items.”
Even President Biden has expressed concerns about upcoming food shortages. In an interview with ABC News, Biden said “I think people are going to start seeing shortages within the next couple of weeks.”
Unanue said that the current situation with the coronavirus pandemic has exposed a lot of fragility in the food supply chain, and he expects that we will see more problems in the coming months. Problems like “never before.”
It’s important to note that food shortages are not a typical problem for the wealthiest country on earth, even though the corporate press continues to downplay the severity of this potential crisis.
For reference, the last time the US faced a real food shortage was during the Great Depression of the 1930s.
Americans have been noticing for some time now that many shelves are empty when visiting their local grocery stores.
Things have even gotten so bad in some places that the hashtag #BareShelvesBiden will periodically trend on Twitter. Consisting of photos of empty grocery stores and seemingly abandoned aisles that were once fully stocked.

As Unanue referenced, it’s not just Americans who are facing food shortages.
The United Nations has warned that the world is “on the brink of a hunger pandemic” as a result of the coronavirus.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said in October that “the number of people suffering from acute hunger is rising for the first time in over a decade.”
Bizarrely, in the past few months, there have been several fires and explosions at food production facilities around the world.
In other words, an odd, coincidental uptick in “accidents” that will pose ramifications on the country’s ongoing food shortage problem.
It’s not clear what is causing these accidents, but they are definitely adding to the already mounting pressure on the food supply chain.
The situation is dire, and it doesn’t seem to be getting any better. It’s important to be prepared for the possibility of a food shortage in the coming months. Stock up on non-perishable items, and if you can grow your own food, now is the time to start.
