In the shock of change brought about by the coronavirus crisis, it can be hard to find a north star for strategic business decision-making. In the food industry, we know the immediate task at hand is to safeguard public health, while ensuring the supply chain continues to yield reliable food sources for consumers. Many businesses have adopted new sanitization programs or leaned on virtual supplier onboarding to work towards this daunting goal in real time, but organizations are also looking to prepare their organizations for a future shaped by this crisis. As the industry continues to reckon with the immediate challenges and risks associated with the coronavirus pandemic, it is important to keep an eye on the permanent changes forming within public consciousness.
