Revelation 13:16-18 “Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let the one who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man, and his number is 666.”

Important Takeaways:

  • Food supply chain thefts rise in 2023, as price increases and inflation continue to have significant effect
  • Food continues to be the commodity most at risk of theft in the global supply chain and now accounts for a third of all hijacking incidents – up 29% on 2022. Amidst the ongoing impact of inflation globally, these data suggest thieves are increasingly targeting basic goods that have experienced significant price increases.
  • Theft of agricultural food products has also risen to 10% and now accounts for one in ten hijacking incidents.
  • Notable incidents from 2023 include one involving the theft of more than 52 tons of olive oil in Greece.
