COVID-19 Impact Analysis

In the initial months of the pandemic, logistical constraints rendered it difficult to procure raw materials for productions. This led to a cessation of production to a large extent. Fortunately, heightening demand for health-based functional foods has sustained the growth.

As consumers are now careful about following a hygienic lifestyle, investments in immunity boosting foods is providing credible traction to casein imbued foods and beverages. Realizing this surging demand, prominent manufacturers are relying on online sales platforms to enable consumer access to their products.

Vendors are ensuring that production facilities remain operational while implementing strict safeguards to prevent infections on-premises. Mandatory social distancing and wearing personal protective equipment have proven very useful in maintaining continuity of operations.
