On this episode of BraveTV, Dr. Jason Dean (Founder, BraveTV), Eric Christianson (CEO Nutrient Survival), and Chris Heaven (CEO Survival Dispatch), discuss the tightening supply of food, globally and in America. The outlook is not good, and all three men highly recommend that you start stocking up food before the stuff really hits the fan.
Fires and accidents at a dozen-plus food processing plants this year are just an unfortunate coincidence - or could they be the result of terrorism? In the last few weeks, five major food distributors in four states have been destroyed by explosions and fires. The last four months have seen accidents at more than 20 food plants and warehouses in the U.S. and Canada. Many organizations will be reviewing their risk management and process safety plans to identify any holes, and increasing employee training on chemical safety.
In recent days, the FBI has warned that more trouble may be on the way. In a warning to the food and agriculture sector, the bureau's cyber division said that "ransomware actors may attack agricultural cooperatives during critical planting and harvest seasons, disrupting operations, causing financial loss, and negatively impacting the food supply chain." The Colonial pipeline was knocked offline by ransomware last year. In order to regain control of its systems, Colonial paid the attackers millions of dollars in ransom.
