Over the last 18 months, the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted supply chains from end to end around the globe. In many cases, food and beverage processors suddenly learned the hard way where weaknesses in their supply chains were. Justin Marx, CEO of Marx Foods, a supplier to restaurants and home cooks, shares insights on the ongoing supply chain challenges facing the industry.
The COVID-19 pandemic dramatically impacted all industries. The food industry is no exception.
