Supporting the food industry
While a visit to the supermarket may seem like a surreal experience as we all do our bit to keep two metres apart and shop sensibility for essential groceries, every step of the supply chain is doing everything they can to ensure supermarkets can cope with the unprecedented demand.
As news of COVID-19 captured our attention and led to further restrictions imposed by the government, panic-buying saw empty shelves and a new fear of food shortages.
But the food industry is incredibly adaptable and has many hard workers pulling out all the stops at every stage of the supply chain. Take a step back from supermarket shelves to their storerooms, the local distribution centres, larger regional distribution centres, all the way back to the food production factories and the many staff involved in packaging, transporting, delivering and stocking food.
With the closure of restaurants and other hospitality outlets, the supply chain has now fully adapted to deal with increased customer demand in retail food stores. This means many food distribution and production facilities have taken on more staff working longer hours to get food packed and ready to be ordered and delivered. Logistics facilities are also a vital part of this new maximum service operation with a greater need for qualified drivers to take on the increased pressure of transporting food at each step of the supply process.
This is a time where we all need to stay safe, stay home where we can and avoid unnecessary trips to the supermarket but it is also a time to be thankful and show our gratitude to everyone who continues to work and support us through the crisis.
