What is Happening to the Food Supply Chain?

+ more

 

Every industry’s supply chain has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, forcing key players to be agile and flexible in response.

But what about for the industry that quite literally fuels us all?

On this episode of MarketScale Live, host and Voice of B2B Daniel Litwin was joined by Kevin C. Kenny, Chief Operating Officer for Decernis, a FoodChain ID company, to discuss how the food supply chain, particularly as it relates to meat, has been affected.

Kenny’s primary focus is on the safety of the food supply chain and of the food itself and regulations surrounding the way products move through the food supply chain. In fact, he said Decernis has over 100,000 regulations that it tracks to help identify what’s happening at every step of the supply chain process.

Now, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the pace has picked up significantly.
“There’s been an incredible amount fluidity,” Kenny said. “Every day I wake up, and there’s a new situation. There are new problems to talk about, and there are new challenges in the supply chain. … I’ve been doing this for 25 years, and I’ve never been through anything quite as exciting.”

Key bottlenecks and focal points related to the COVID-19 disruption exist in working to ensure worker safety during the pandemic, particularly in the meat industry, attempting to mitigate more potential disruptions in getting goods from place to place, and more.
