The supply chain and inflation problems felt in 2022 could still intensify in 2023, particularly in the food sector.
Extreme weather and drought, labor shortages, and other factors threaten to make the following 13 food items difficult to find this year. (Related: Last May, the Bank of England warned that “apocalyptic” food shortages are soon to come.):
1) Beef: According to United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimates, the average American will consume 5.6 percent less beef in 2023 compared to 2022 – this being the steepest decline in 40 years. Drought conditions and high costs are blamed for this expected shortage.
2) Lettuce: Unseasonably warm weather, according to the Grower-Shipper Association of Central California, could make leafy greens in shorter supply this year, as could the spread of crop diseases like Impatiens Necrotic Spot Virus (INSV).
