Basic food shortages cause crisis in Venezuela

Labor problems, social unrest and currency regulations that cause difficulties importing raw ingredients have created shortages of basic foods such as cornmeal, milk and chicken in Venezuela. Lately, even bread has been in short supply, and people are queuing in long lines to buy this basic staple. Travellers to Venezuela should be aware that basic food shortages may cause demonstrations and interrupt travel plans.
