COVID-19 pandemic tests Canada’s agri-food supply chain
Food and beverage processers will need to adopt new strategies for diversifying markets and production
— BY DON BUCKINGHAM —
Public policy matters because it can influence consumer behaviour, particularly at times like these— wash your hands, practice social distancing, limit activities to those with only a few people. Recently, we have witnessed behavioural changes occurring at the speed of light because of COVID-19. What was unthinkable
a little while ago has become the new “normal” for Canadians. We need to think about what policy changes might help the Canadian agri-food processing sector survive the expected economic fallout of COVID-19
and thrive in the months and years beyond it.
