The Growing Impact of COVID-19 on the Food Industry


On January 30, 2020, the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus disease 2019 outbreak (COVID-19) a “public health emergency of international concern.” The situation has continued to evolve rapidly throughout the new year, causing massive changes in the way we live and work.

The novel coronavirus is thought to have originated from a food market in Wuhan, China, the capital of the Hubei province at the end of 2019. Since then, every aspect of our society has been affected by this public health crisis, which is now classified as a pandemic. To date, more than 200,000 people have become ill, and as of Wednesday (3/18), at least 8,200 have died worldwide.
