They’re Not Predicting Food Shortages – They’re Planning Them: 20 Food Processing Plants Burned Down In Past 5 Months (Video)

Last July, I welcomed GSingh to The Sons of Liberty.  GSingh is a human rights activist whose family has been engaged in farming.  He has intimate knowledge via experience in Africa and Asia with manufactured famines by governments.  He warned that if another mass lockdown took place, the government means it to starve the people to death.  In other words, it would be a new Holodomor.  Within the past 5 months, there have been 20 food processing plants that have burned down, with two in the past week.

Matt Agorist reports:

As food uncertainly lingers on the horizon thanks to US sanctions and government decimation of the economy during the past two years, there is another factor contributing to the problem. Since the beginning of the year, there have been several very large food processing facilities that have exploded or burned to the ground across the U.S.

This week, a vegetable and nut processing facility in Dufur, Oregon became engulfed in flames for unknown reasons.

“Lights flickered; They heard a pop and went up there to check it out and there was a fire,” according to a report made to Wasco County 911 records listed in the Wasco County Sheriff’s log.

The independent distributor of natural, organic an non-GMO foods which employees around 150 people, burned to the ground.

One week before that fire in Oregon, a massive fire brought down a meat processing plant in Conway, New Hampshire. After burning for 16 hours, multiple fire crews finally put out the fire at East Conway Beef and Pork but the facility is completely destroyed.

That same week, in Salinas, California, a massive fire at the Taylor Farms Processing Facility led to the evacuation of residents as it burned for over 17 hours. Taylor Farms is a major agriculture company that processes and delivers many of the salad kits seen in grocery stores. The cause of this fire is currently under investigation.

Just weeks before that, a massive fire engulfed a Walmart distribution center in Plainfield, Indiana where over 1,000 employees shipped food and other supplies all over the region. The fire destroyed the massive 1 million square foot operation.

That same week, one of the largest food facilities of its kind in South Texas caught fire and burned to the ground. Prior to burning down, the Rio Fresh facility in San Juan, Texas, grew, packed and shipped a variety of Texas-grown items including Texas 1015 Sweet Onions, melons, greens, cabbage, and kale. The cause of the fire is currently unknown.

In Hermiston, Oregon, in February, a massive food processing facility suddenly exploded, injuring 7 of the nearly 400 employees who work at the Shearer’s Foods plant. According to reports, the cause of the explosion which originated near a boiler is still under investigation.

It’s not only food production and distribution plants either. In Maricopa, Arizona, in March, a massive fire wiped out the Maricopa Food Pantry which distributes food to the less fortunate. More than 50,000 lbs of food was destroyed in the blaze that lasted for 24 hours. That fire is also under investigation.

The fact is that since last year, more than a dozen of these fires and explosions have taken place at food processing and distribution centers.

To be clear, general warehouse fires are quite common. In fact, fire departments respond to more than 1,000 a year. However, the main cause of these fires is arson. What’s more, fires in food processing facilities are not that common and occur far less often.

To claim that all of these incidents are related would be pure speculation. But given the current supply chain situation and looming food shortages, the very idea of critical infrastructure burning to the ground for any reason, is unsettling to say the least.

Vision Times also adds:

Gem State Processing

The same day as the Taylor Farm fire, an airplane crashed into Idaho’s Gem State Processing plant. A release by the local police department said that while the pilot did not survive, no employees were injured.

April 18 reporting by Daily Mail identified the pilot as a 30-year-old woman with 11 years of flight experience who was transporting UPS packages from Salt Lake City.

The woman’s “distraught” father attributed the cause of the crash to a 60-foot chimney on the roof of the plant that allegedly disburses a large amount of steam.

Local authorities were paraphrased as stating the woman “was flying too low while attempting to land.”

The website for the company describes itself as processing 18,000 acres worth of potatoes each year.

The facility appears to have been largely undamaged in the incident.

Shearer’s Foods

On March 22, Tri-City Herald reported that the Shearer’s Foods potato chip plant in Hermiston, Oregon was “gone” after a boiler explosion and its subsequent fire annihilated the facility.

The outlet reported that the boiler was fueled by natural gas and that the company supplied potato and corn chips throughout the western United States.

Seven employees were hospitalized in the blast. The Herald stated the facility is home to nearly 400 employees.

The webpage for a local lawyer commencing legal proceedings against the company on behalf of two of the injured staffers alleged the boiler “was an inherently dangerous defective product apparently owned by a third party.”

The firm further alleges that the boiler was utilized to power fryers for kettle chips and that it “was installed in a hallway rather than in an enclosed boiler room.”

It added that the company “manufactures Shearer, Kettle, Frito-Lay, Delicious and Vista branded snack foods, as well as for several private label brands including Walmart and Costco” and brings in estimated revenues in the range of $500 million per year.

Far from isolated incidents

There are also several additional instances of similar calamities in recent weeks.

On March 31 Texas-based Rio Fresh suffered a fire that severely damaged an onion processing facility.

Local media outlet KRGV reported the site employed 300 people and that “hundreds of thousands of warehouse space and structure was damaged from the fire.”

One staff member was quoted as stating, “If I had to guess, anywhere from 50 to 100 hundred truckloads of onions were lost in the fire, you can see them still burning in the distance.”

On March 16, a massive fire wiped out much of a Walmart fulfillment center in Plainfield Indiana, an event serious enough that it brought in the ATF to investigate.

For New Hampshire’s East Conway Beef and Pork, disaster struck on April 11 when a fire broke out serious enough that it took respondents 16 hours to extinguish.

Local news outlets, however, described the company as merely a local butcher shop. 

Two cows were lost in the disaster.
