North America’s food supply chain: disruption, adaptation and evolution

Posted on August 14, 2020

With 60% of US operators experiencing product shortages, the Covid-19 crisis has prompted a fresh look at the North American food supply chain

More than 60% of foodservice establishments in the US reported product shortages in June, according to figures from analysts Technomic. North America was particularly affected by meat supply disruption after temporary closures of major meat processing plants due to coronavirus infection among employees.

Border restrictions caused disruption of the supply chain between the US and Canada and a shortage of migrant workers.

The crisis has prompted a fresh look at the food supply chain and a new focus on stability and traceability moving forwards. “The pandemic just exacerbated and sped up dramatically changes that were coming,” says Juan Martinez FCSI, founder of Profitality LLC, Miami, US.
