Food4Patriots...believes that an unanticipated crisis could result in food shortages, higher food prices and poorer food quality.
Nashville, Tenn. (PRWEB) May 31, 2013
In a recent six-day period (May 24-29, 2013), a number of different food recalls were announced on the U.S. government’s food safety website. They include Eco-Cuisine’s brownie mix and other foods (possible health risk), Win Luck Trading’s allergy alert (undeclared eggs), and Salmolux’s cold smoked salmon (possible health risk).
Food4Patriots, the supplier of emergency food suitable for long-term storage, survival and emergency preparedness, believes that an unanticipated crisis could result in food shortages, higher food prices and poorer food quality. The company will be launching soon to help people be prepared for an emergency situation.
In the meantime, Food4Patriots has five recommendations for people who want to save money at the supermarket:
- Watch for sales on non-perishables and foods that can be frozen, then stock up with six to eight weeks’ worth of those items to be stored at home.
- Don’t neglect the top and bottom rows in grocery store aisles. That’s where many of the best deals can be found.
- Avoid impulse buys, which are usually found throughout the path from the front door to the cash register. Stick to the list.
- Buy unsliced lunch meats and cheeses in the refrigerated aisle rather than sliced meats and cheeses at the deli counter. Savings could be up to 50 percent.
- Eat leftovers for lunch the following day. A reheated bowl of beef stew costs nothing, but lunch in a restaurant will usually run around $10.
