Starting in the summer of last year, Canadians were continually warned about the rising food prices that were about to hit all of our dinner tables. After last year’s severe drought that hit the Midwestern and southern states, wheat and soybean crops were hit especially hard. And not only does that affect things like grains and cereals, but it also has a trickle-down effect that affects other crops as well, such as cattle crops that feed on those grains. And while we may have been saved from the worst last year, it doesn’t mean that the crisis is over. This year, Canadians are going to be facing rising food costs, and they’re going to need to know how to deal with it.
