Minnesota isn’t going to run out of meat
Friday, May 22, 2020
If you’ve been to a grocery store in recent weeks, you may have noticed the meat section looking a little picked over.
Then again, maybe not: while some stores have imposed limits on how much meat customers can buy, or have run out of some products, others haven’t seen much change in supply.
There’s no shortage of animals. But as COVID-19 has closed down or slowed down meat processing plants, the meat supply chain has been strained, making it more difficult to get animals processed and get the meat to the right places at the right time.
