Storage Food is Flying Off the Shelves ... Backorders at Various Factories Expected
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.
