Now, more bad news on the food front: there is also a shortage of pigtail. A staple in the Belizean lunch, the meat has largely been unavailable neither at local importers nor at neighborhood supermarkets. According to reports to Love News, the scarcity of the product had been reported from before the Easter holiday. While importers have confirmed that there is an order due to arrive in the country in the coming days, the cause of the current unavailability is unknown. The retail price had recently increased to seven dollars a pound.
