COVID-19 is spreading like wildfire across geographies, especially in the United States which is now declared as one of the worst-hit countries in the world. Its impact is widespread and many low- and middle- income countries are witnessing a gradual rise in the number of positive cases and are imposing rigorous lockdowns and travel bans to flatten the curve. While the coronavirus impact has been felt by all aspects of the economy, the US food supply chain is no exception. Our supply chain analytics experts suggest that the food supply chain is one of the hardest-hit segments and is expected to lead to acute shortages of certain product categories owing to the ongoing supply chain disruptions.

According to Quantzig’s food supply chain analytics experts, “When a crisis impacts the supply network either at the source or the destination, it will have a repercussive effect on the global supply chain and interrupt both the upstream and downstream production processes. Notably, this hierarchical nature has resulted in increased exposure to disruptions in the case of the COVID-19 outbreak.”
