The prices of sugar and wheat have not yet been affected by the Tsunamis that have struck Indonesia.
Indonesia has been hit with multiple Tsunamis, the most recent one hitting late last week. The country has been without the most basic resources like water and food for days according to CNN online.
Indonesia is known for exporting products like sugar and wheat to the United States. With the state they are in today, production is likely to slow.
The Tops Supermarket in Syracuse, New York still has not felt the effects of the recent disaster Indonesia is experiencing.
The supermarket manager says he doesn’t believe the supermarket will be feeling the repercussions of this disaster for a while.
The prices for sugar and bread in the store are low, with deals that will extend throughout the week. Shoppers like Ricardo Lyons are very excited to enjoy the deals and stock up on sugar as a preventative action for what may happen later on with prices.
“Sugar never goes bad. I could use this 4 years from now and I like to bake a lot.” Lyons, a Tops shopper and baking fanatic, said on why he will be stocking up on sugar.
