This is more of a question, a general musing that got me thinking about something a friend said.
We get a lot of our food items imported, i have no idea exactly how much though. I just wondered if the no flying of planes would have an effect on what we see here in the supermarkets at all?
I reckon there would have been a lot of food waste over the past few days, with fresh items ready to be shipped but now cannot get to their destination.

I have a friend who owns a few fruit shops and he told me yesterday that all the wholesale fruit and veg has risen in the last few days so dont be surprised to see prices rise on the back of this.
I was more concerned at my local pub putting the beer up from £1.39 to £1.69 yesterday though.

There were reports yesterday that there was a possibility of food shortages and theres also news today where food is rotting in kenya i think it was, waiting to be exported.
Theres another thing we`re all missing too,
The water supply.
Considering the water we all drink comes via tap for most, what measures are being put in place to ensure its safe to drink?
Is there a possibility that this may harm our water supply?
