A combination of cold temperatures, flooding and lack of sunlight has been ruining crops across key agriculture areas in southern Europe.
The heaviest rain in 30 years has flooded the Murcia region of southeast Spain and severe cold and snow in central Italy have nearly wiped out vegetables such as lettuce, tomatoes, broccoli, peppers, eggplants and zucchinis.
The shortages have significantly increased food prices across northern Europe as suppliers scramble to meet demand.
Measurable snow has also blanketed the coast of the Mediterranean Sea for the first time since the early 1980s.
The cold snap has claimed more than 65 lives across Europe this month.
