Cheap food on the way ?

Earlier in the week Russia has retaliated at the sanctions imposed on them by banning imports of a lot of produce from the EU, USA and Australia for one year, now this could mean that we will get cheaper food at our supermarkets as producers will have excess stock which will go to ruin unless sold at cheaper prices. Already though there are countries which are asking Brussels for compensation as they will lose Billions with the sanctions Russia has imposed. Russians will have less stocks on their shelves so will have to ration, and I am sure that the UK will have to cough up to Brussels if the countries asking for compensation, get their compensation. Countries who are already struggling are going to struggle even more.
Ukraine are now saying they will impose their own sanctions on Russia by cutting the Southern Russian Gas pipe running through Ukraine, which will then hurt some EU countries as they rely on up to 98% of their Gas from Russia.  This dick measuring competition is going to hurt a lot of countries apart from the one who is pushing the hardest.
Edit, added Australia.

I don't know about the rest of it but South American beef is much tastier than European possibly because they age it properly instead of nuking it
Interesting so is the beef from Namibia
I buy a complete top rump from the trade supplier where it is of excellent quality and much much cheaper than from a supermarket. I then cut it into steaks and small joints then freeze it

I ate my fair share of cows when I lived in Australia, but I haven't eaten much meat since I have been back in England, so I might have to do a search for South American beef suppliers up north if it is as good as what you say OJ.

I don't know what your beef is Wink
South American beef is highly sought after and some of it attracts premium prices such as Argentinian beef. I wonder if they would want to risk their present relationships with the rest of the world to supply Russia.

Which countries will lose billions?
