Organized Crime Controls Food Prices and Supply in Six States, Says CONCAMIN

Article by Fernanda Murillo for Milenio

The Confederation of Industrial Chambers of the United States of Mexico (Concamin) and its affiliates expressed their concern with the insecurity that states such as Guerrero, Michoacán, Puebla, Tlaxcala, Veracruz and Zacatecas have experienced in recent months. 

“The states are going through this complicated situation which threatens the suppliers of goods and food, controls prices and supply, leaving the supply chain without transportation, by stealing, burning or destroying the trucks that supply those regions,” they explained. 

In addition, they warned, this affects to a greater extent those who have the least, including marginalized communities controlled by organized crime, putting food security and supply at risk, and making food more expensive in these populations, they pointed out. 

Through a statement, Concamin commented that there are companies that have reconsidered supplying these populations, because insuring merchandise is expensive and replacing destroyed trucks is not an easy task because there are no vehicles with the characteristics required for that transportation. 

The business representatives recalled their commitment to building a more just and prosperous Mexico for all and call on the authorities to work as a team with actions that promote the return of social peace.
