Polar Halts Beer Production

There have been a ton of problems in the country of Venezuela recently, as the economy is going through extreme problems, there flat out is not enough water and food, no internet and facebook and medicine can hardly be accessed. There is a lot of concern that the country is not going to be able to survive a hyperinflation state that appears to be on the way in the near future, and to make matters worse, some of the major businesses in Venezuela are stopping production. Venezuela’s biggest producer of beer, Cervecería Polar, is stopping making beer for the time being. This is due to the fact that they are stating they do not have the ingredients to actually make their beer, which really shows how devastating of a time the country is currently in. If one of the biggest companies can’t even get proper access to ingredients to make their products, one can only imagine what is happening to every day people like Norka that are looking to buy groceries. There have been a ton of food and water trucks that have been taken over and robbed as of recent, with people stating that they have no other choice but to do what they have to do in order to feed their families. Polar has shut for the meantime because they can’t get access to ingredients that they need imported, but there is no determining time table in terms of when they will be back yet.
