Venezuela's largest food processing company says it is not the cause of food shortages; that it is producing more food products than last year. The new President Maduro is assuming them of deliberately causing shortages by hoarding. But the socialism of Maduro and his predecessor Hugo Chavez screwed up the food chain by fixing prices and other manipulations of the market.
Chavez promised to make Venezuela self sufficient in food. After his long rule it imports 70 per cent of food.
