On September 25, 2022, the largest fresh produce market in Paris, France was suddenly engulfed in flames. According to journalists on the scene, the fire covered approximately 7,000 square meters at its peak. The smoke was visible for miles. Over one hundred firefighters were deployed to control the fire.
The Rungis International Market is regarded as the largest wholesale market of fresh products in the world. It is located in the commune of Rungis, in the southern suburbs of Paris. The market supplies a large portion of fresh foods and horticulture products in the area.
The fires at Rungis were brought under control, but not until a large portion of the market was burned to the ground. This massive fire is the latest attack on the Western food supply. Over one hundred food manufacturing plants, meat plants, farms and markets have caught fire over the past year and a half. These unexplained fires are not related to forest fires or other natural disasters. There’s no doubt these fires have disrupted the supply chain across Europe and the United States.
Some of the first noticeable fires were recorded in the early part of 2021. These included the 75,000-square-foot processing plant in Fayetteville, which was destroyed by a large fire on 1/11/21. On 4/30/21, the Smithfield Foods pork processing plant in Monmouth, IL was taken off guard by a large fire. On 7/25/21, over 170 emergency personnel responded to a fire at the Kellogg plant in Memphis, Tennessee. On 7/30/21, firefighters battled a large fire at Tyson’s River Valley Ingredients plant in Hanceville, Alabama. On 3/28/22, a large fire at the Maricopa Food Pantry in Arizona resulted in 50,000 pounds of food going up in smoke.
Over the summer of 2022, millions of turkeys and chickens were destroyed at farms from Nebraska to Iowa to Minnesota to North Carolina. Some food processing plants are tanking in the current economic climate. On 6/12/22, the largest pork company in the US shut down its California plant due to the high cost of doing business. On 6/23/22, George’s Inc.: Poultry and Prepared Foods announced the closure of their processing plant in Campbell County, Tennessee.
Some of the latest arson attacks on the food supply include:
These are just a few instances. While some incidents might be incidental, dozens more seem to follow a similar pattern of terrorism and sabotage. The food supply has been under attack ever since factories and food processing plants were targeted for shutdown based on fraudulent covid-19 testing programs that isolate healthy people at home.
