timeline of what’s happening with food scarcity and food inflation worldwide:
- The first areas to be hit are the Middle East due to their geographical proximity to Ukraine and Russia.
- Western Europe will suffer the impact over the next 3-4 months, with food scarcity to be sustained for at least 18 months following.
- The United States, Canada, Australia and other nations on different continents will feel the effects in the second half of 2022, continuing well into 2023 and likely continuing through 2024. Importantly, this provides a very narrow window of opportunity for North Americans to stock up on food before the scarcity strikes.
