Storage Food is Flying Off the Shelves ... Backorders at Various Factories Expected
Consider this a public service announcement and fair warning ...
Such high volumes of storage food orders are being placed to food suppliers over the last week to two weeks that I am pretty sure we're going into another period when storage foods are going to be backordered at the factory. If you recall last year, that can go as long as 5-6 months in no time at all.
Why now? You'd have to poll the buyers to be nail it down, but I suspect any or all of these events are being considered as motivation (I doubt that I need to explain more): the Hurricane Sandy aftermath, the election, the fiscal cliff, an erupting war in the Middle East.
