The Effect of Covid-19 on the Food and Beverage Industry in Nigeria by LIMULT

The Food and Beverage Industry consists of all the organizations involved in transforming raw agricultural products into consumer food.

The overall industry supply chain includes food processing, packaging, and distribution. It does not cover raw food production. 

This industry includes fresh food, packaged food, and beverages (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic). 

From food sold at the grocery store to cooked meals served at restaurants, institutions, and events, this industry serves a huge variety of retail outlets.

The Effects Of COVID-19 To The Industry

The major challenges almost all businesses are facing has been from the effects of the pandemic. Some businesses flourished overnight, while others struggled to adapt. 

Managing supply chain disruption is not new to manufacturers and industrial companies. Still, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic made it more paramount for processes and operations to change.

In the past few months, countless pictures of empty grocery store shelves were shared verifying that grocery store supply chains were not prepared for the spike in demand.

It’s important for manufacturers to understand the consumer’s mindset and apply innovations to minimize further disruption in the supply chain.

As a result of the change in consumer demands, larger companies have been acquiring smaller companies to tap into their resources that appeal more to the market.

Big companies seek smaller companies for many factors like innovation, sustainability, corporate social responsibility, and sometimes for simple healthy ingredients.
