The COVID-19 pandemic is the latest in a long series of disruptions that Lebanon’s food distribution market is facing. Multiple factors, including Lebanon’s ongoing financial crisis and repeated bank closures, coupled with new government measures and the coronavirus lockdown could lead to local shortages, warn experts.
This Oreo cereal box is at exactly 35,000 LBP. (1$ = 1515 LBP prior to our economic crisis in #Lebanon - now 1$ = >3000 LBP) - I literally filled up my whole car fuel tank for 30,000 LBP. An imported cereal box is officially a luxury now in Lebanon. pic.twitter.com/RBDRZnZQHB— Luna Safwan - لونا صفوان (@LunaSafwan) April 16, 2020
