Airspace lockdown could stall UK food supplies
There is growing concern that the ongoing airspace lockdown, after the volcanic eruption in Iceland created a volcanic ash cloud, could impact upon food supplies to the UK. The food chain is a very complicated issue even though consumers only see the end result and an increase in travel time, cost and lack of availability could filter through to create upwards pricing pressure on UK food imports. This would then have the potential to impact upon the rate of inflation and could, if the situation lasts much longer, become a major problem

Food crisis on the horizon
There was a shortage of food during the 1960s prompting the then Prime Minster, Lal Bahadur Shastri, to the appeal to people to forego food once a week. They did obey his genuine appeal. There was no significant number of hungry people then as we have now, with 250 million Indians going to bed without food. The level of poverty and hunger has multiplied several-fold in the last five decades, so much so that India ranks 66th among 88 countries in the hunger index. A loud warning bell has been sounded by Ban-Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations, on the global food crisis. The failure of the World Food Summit held in Rome in November 2009 was unfortunate. It showed the least concern of many governments to the serious problem of food crisis and hunger around the world.
