Due to COVID-19, most of the people are working at home as some of the countries are in full lockdown and/or people self-isolating themselves. The business continues more or less the same as the food industry is seen as one of the most important industries in these days. We wish all of our partners and their families good health.
We see a surge in demand for food commodities especially for products with a longer shelf life and suppliers having difficulties to keep up with high demand due to transportation and labor issues which slows down the shipments.
Some of the countries restricting access to borders and ports and there is a container shortage in general. We expect delays for most of the shipments especially from Asia and there is a high possibility of low stocks for import countries in a short term.
We strongly advise you to cover your short-term needs to avoid any further stock issues.
