Podcast: The Impact of the Coronavirus on Packaged Food and Foodservice in the Western Hemisphere
Everybody is talking about the coronavirus, and we at Rabobank have published a lot about its effect on Asian industries. The virus is now leading to disruptions in Europe (e.g. a lockdown in Italy) and North America. Maria Castroviejo and Cyrille Filott, co-host and host of Consumer Foods-to-Go, provide their initial thoughts on the virus's current impact on foodservice and packaged food in the western hemisphere, as well as what structural shifts we might see in the future. A warning: the R-word will be used.
