So you may have heard about it , there's a bacon shortage out there! Just a few months from now, there will be no more bacon in all of America, and all you bacon lovers are completely out of luck when it comes to bacon and ham!
There are changes coming up
in the pork industry, but there's no shortage that will turn into scarcity or anything worse. So for all you worried pork lovers out there, that European study released this summer was wrong; we are not facing a complete pork shortage and we will not stop selling pork in the next few months. Quite the opposite will take place, in fact.
However, all is not well in the land of pork. There's a serious drought happening in America right now, and while there won't be a bacon shortage, prices of bacon and pork products are going to rise pretty substantially in the next year, perhaps by as much as ten percent.
