The COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented shift in the economy, business operations and our daily lives. Movement restriction orders and supply chain disruptions have rapidly changed the ways of business and daily activities. Industries such as healthcare, medical supplies and food have become more critical in view of these changes.

The food production segment remains one of the priority sectors worldwide. Food security and self-sufficiency are being monitored closely by governments and supply chain specialists are becoming crucial in ensuring basic necessities remain available.
