Just now i went shopping to the nearby supermarket and i had to face the fact that the supply of dairy products has been affected by the northern catastrophe as well. For those who don’t know, Japan’s dairy production is centered in Hokkaido and other norther regions, so the surprising thing is how the supply was not affected until now.
Luckily it doesn’t concern milk (i’d miss my cornflake breakfasts) but there was no plain yogurt of the popular Bulgaria or any other brand either, just the cheapest one that apparently no one dared to buy (it’s like a third the price of a Bulgaria yogurt).
Also there seem to be problems with beef products as well, because the shelves of many kinds of ham and the like have been empty too.
To be honest i hope it’s more like they’re sending all the food north instead of letting it rot in the supermarkets here, and not supply problems.
