December Talking Points: The Great Covid Accelerator – We’re All Our Own Baristas Now

At Rabobank’s recent virtual Food & Agribusiness Summit, we ran a session looking into the impact of the pandemic on the global supply chain. Here are three topics discussed:

1. From Fragile to Flexible Supply Chains – Transparency and technology will play a major role in making future supply chains even more resilient.

2 We Are All Our Own Baristas Now – Greater consumption at home is the structural change that the industry needs to prepare for.

3. Empathy and Business Opportunities – Greater openness this year has led to conversations about business opportunities around mental health issues, such as anxiety reduction.
