Major storable food supplier Augason Farms ceases operations for 90 days, citing collapsing supply chain
Storable food mega-supplier Augason Farms
has ceased operations for 90 days, citing, "global raw-material shortages" and "substantial delays" in procurement and production.
"Regrettably, BCG [the parent company owner of Augason Farms] cannot fulfill your orders on time; therefore, this letter communicates our decision to suspend business for the next 90 days, effective immediately," says an October 7th, 2021 letter issued by Mark Augason, President of Augason Farms, to Augason Farms distributors and retailers (see letter below).
"During these 90 days, we will secure and stockpile raw materials and take measures to accelerate our round-the-clock production output," the letter continues. "We are confident that this reset period will help us better serve you with on-time, complete shipments in the future," the letter adds.
Augason Farms has been a large-scale retailer on Amazon.com, Walmart and many other retail outlets, typically offering non-organic dried fruits, vegetables and meal mixes to the preparedness and survival community.
The full letter is shown here:
In addition to this letter to its distributors and retailers, the Augason Farms website has announced it is no longer processing online orders from customers. "Due to an extremely high order volume through all sales channels we are currently not able to receive any orders through our web site," said an on-site message on Oct. 8th.
"We expect to turn this site back on just as soon as possible."
For the record, we were disturbed to learn about this development. It is yet further evidence of the accelerating collapse of food supply lines. As we have repeatedly warned, the world is about to be plunged into a "Dark Winter" of extreme food scarcity, power grid / energy scarcity and accelerating spike protein fatalities occurring among the vaccinated.
The shuttering of Augason Farms for 90 days is only going to worsen the food scarcity at retail, causing people to scramble even more aggressively to try to locate dwindling food supplies.
In my opinion, the brain dead Democrats only seek to throw more stimulus money at this problem, creating yet more fake fiat currency chasing an ever-shrinking supply of goods. And since you can't eat stimulus money
, all the stimulus in the world is pointless if the supply lines are collapsing. The problem in today's economy isn't a lack of stimulus money, it's a lack of labor
due to all the COVID lockdowns (which are completely nonsensical and based on irrational junk science). This lack of labor is getting translated into food supply chain disruptions and transportation / logistics nightmares that mean fewer goods are available to end customers.
If this continues, the mass starvation and power grid failures will probably kill far more people than COVID ever could.
Our own storable foods operations at HealthRangerStore.com
have been heavily impacted by the collapsing food supply chain. As we reported weeks ago, commercial food purchase contracts that we traditionally signed with food providers for 12 months of food deliveries have all but vanished. Commercial food suppliers told us in July that they, "could not guarantee any food deliveries beyond 90 days out." Suppliers that used to offer credit terms are now demanding payment up front, or full payment upon delivery. And many commercial food orders are resulting in only partial deliveries, typically representing half of what was originally ordered.
The last time we put storable food buckets into our online inventory, they sold out in 90 minutes
. We have remained out of stock ever since. (Our current production run will put items back into inventory on Nov. 11th, assuming the power grid stays up.)
There is no question whatsoever that the food supply chain in North America is rapidly collapsing
. This is because elections have consequences, and the Democrats would seemingly rather see America locked down than working in productive jobs. If you pay people to stay home and not work, people will stay home and not work. Before long, the shelves are empty. It's a page ripped right out of communist-style centrally-planned economies... which history has proven are horribly inefficient and lead to exactly the kind of supply chain failures we are witnessing at this very moment.
Those who remain in denial about this reality won't be able to deny it for much longer, as the retail shelves are starting to run dry as well. Every nation, they say, is but nine meals away from a revolution
. Those nine missed meals are arriving this winter, it seems.
We wish Augason Farms the best in resuming operations in 2022, should supply lines improve. However, we are extremely concerned that the picture is going to be far worse 90 days out. And those who fail to stockpile food in the next 30-60 days may find themselves literally starving to death in January / February (or begging FEMA for emergency food handouts).
The US power grid won't even be reliably functioning by then, according to energy industry insiders. Hear the full details of the coming USA power grid blackouts in my most recent podcast:
