When it comes to bad weather, most people think about the damage it can cause to homes and the personal lives of the people affected. But there's much more to an extreme weather event than that. Weather that causes chaos and disruption for individuals can cause the same types of problems for businesses and supply chains. That means that inventory and distribution issues can quickly start to appear, and the people and companies that need to get items to and from locations may start to see a breakdown of those items' ability to travel.
There is nothing more stressful than dealing with a food recall. Food issues can happen throughout the entire supply chain process, whether the problem occurred while the food was growing on the farm, during the processing, or when shipped out to retailers. There are several different reasons why a food product may be recalled. Timely communication must be performed to ensure that the product is pulled from the shelves and that the public understands the recall in case they have purchased the specific product.
The current COVID-19 pandemic has made business owners change how their operations implement health and safety policies for their workers. This factor has had the biggest impact on the food service, convenience retail and wholesale distribution industries. Convenience retail and grocery stores are changing their storefront set ups to promote social distancing and provide ways to keep products safe and surfaces sanitized to cut down on the spread of germs and bacteria.
There's no end to the economic headlines that have been brought about by the coronavirus. The fear of transmission has caused people to head to the grocer story in record numbers across the entire US. But some of the most attention-grabbing have had to do with meat and poultry. These items can't be produced as safely as they were given the threat of the virus.
