Food shortages have hit the UK, with some supermarkets reporting shortages of up to 90% of their normal stocks.
The supermarket industry is facing an acute food crisis with food stocks reaching an all-time low in April.
Many food retailers have reported a shortage of up, while others have warned of shortages.
The supermarket industry’s official stock is at a low point, with the number of food items available in stores down over 50% from last year, according to data from the Food Marketing Association (FMA).
Some supermarkets have been reporting a supply crunch.
But, according, the supermarket industry says that shortages of the most common foodstuffs are “slightly less acute” than last year.
Food shortages have also hit some parts of the UK in recent weeks, including Birmingham, Newcastle and Leeds, according the BBC.
The BBC’s Simon Dawson says supermarkets are running out of food to stock in.
Some food suppliers have been forced to sell their stocks for cheaper prices in an attempt to replenish stocks.
However, some are reporting that they are facing “significant supply challenges” in the supermarket sector, with suppliers having to pay more for the same product.
Food stocks are still at an all time low in some areas, with more than 90% in some supermarkets reported to be “underutilised”.
The Food Marketing Federation says that while shortages are rare, the UK has one of the world’s highest food prices and shortages are common.
The food shortages have forced supermarkets to start selling less, and some have even started to close, according FMA.
Food scarcity in the UK is not new.
In 2015, the government reported that more than half of the country’s food supply was still at or below “full capacity”.
In 2017, the FMA reported that just over half of all foodstamps in the country were “not fully utilised”.
Many food suppliers in the food industry are now reporting shortages, including Aldi and Tesco.
