A three day strike, an earthquake, civil unrest, pipeline ruptures, chemical spills.

The list is long and the supply chain has been JIT'd to the nines. What is in your pantry? Enough to qualify you as a terrorist?

    +Chris George During the last two really cold winters that we experienced, I worked for a local supermarket. While we could assure stocks of certain ambient goods, supplies of milk and bread (daily deliveries) struggled to get through.

    While much of the produce, milk especially, is produced locally, due to the nature of the distribution system, it's processed elsewhere and takes a few days from the point of production to get to the point of sale.

    We were lucky in that we had a local bakery supplier, and we could ask them to boost supplies temporarily, eventually transport problems would prevent them from getting the raw ingredients.

    We should all be asking where our bread is coming from.

    I live in a food export zone. An hour's bicycle ride from my house is more rice than my town could eat in a year. The real trouble will be teaching idiots how to cook without killing themselves.
