Food Exports: The Impact
Some food exports and local suppliers have increased very sharply over the last month (March 2020). Many store items have experienced increases of hundreds of percentages in demand and the issue for businesses has been keeping up with supply.
But it’s a mixed picture as those selling into foodservice – especially the hotels, restaurants and cafes sector have been severely hit.
While many restaurants have closed altogether for the foreseeable future, others have pivoted their offer to offer meals for collection or home delivery. Apps like Uber Eats have provided a guide to restaurants on how to go about this others have developed software suitable for running a takeaway business which it is offering to restaurants to help keep them trading.
Food Exports: New Opportunities
E-commerce has been steadily growing but now the advantages of a direct-to-consumer approach are clear to all and businesses will trial and learn ways to succeed better in this channel.
The crisis won’t last forever, however much of the food buying and selling environment changes rapidly, and this means also wider choice of items.
