Cuba is facing a potential food crisis due to boom in tourism

Cuba is in a curious position when it comes to food

Cuba is currently seeing a big boost in its tourism. While on paper, this is a good thing, the locals are potentially facing a food crisis.

It’s the American tourists that are flowing in heavily to the country. The flood of this foreign money has skyrocketed food prices, making it hard for the locals to afford. At the same time, most of the food outlets are struggling to meet the demands.

The beer breweries have been failing to keep up with the inflow resulting in unavailability for the natives. It is going to be a tough time Cubans as a potential food crisis lurks around the corner.
