As we all know, some situations in the United States are getting worse day by day, especially in food items where food prices are increasing, and there is a shortage of some grocery items.
According to the recent data from Consumer Price Index, grocery prices were 7.9% higher year-over-year as of February 2022.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), food prices are expected to rise between 2.5% and 3.5%, and also food-at-home prices are expected to increase between 3% and 4% by the end of 2022.
However, it is expected that the price of potatoes will increase by 30%, so they are more expensive, and stores may have less supply.
Recently, Frito-Lay announced that it had reduced the number of chips in its Doritos bags, the latest example of corporations shrinking their products amid record inflation in the United States.
It’s been almost a month since McDonald’s stopped selling large-sized French Fries due to a global potato shortage.
The other potato chips manufacturer has chosen to shrink their products while maintaining their prices unchanged.
In the United States, inflation has already reached a 40-year high. Potatoes and their products such as chips and snacks are a few items that may face shortages or disappear totally from grocery store shelves this year.
