As time has passed, food trends have evolved. Veganism may seem like one of these trends, with “beyond” meat alternatives being offered by chains such as Burger King and Dunkin Donuts, but really, it isn’t all that new.
The arrival of COVID-19 flipped our world upside down, and now as things slowly open up and workforces start to return to their physical space, we are all finding new ways to adapt. Whereas before we learned to fill the roles of stay-at-home parents, teachers, employees, coaches, entertainers, house keepers, line cooks, etc., now we must brace ourselves for more change as we re-join the physical workplace.
These are unprecedented times, and we are all experiencing changes in our day-to-day activities. How we work, eat, shop, and socialize has been impacted. These changes have brought new sets of challenges and new questions for the future. One question is how are logistics affected, and what changes are occurring within industries? Before COVID-19 hit, most of us were used to quick turnaround and large inventories of items to choose from. Same or next-day delivery options were becoming the standard. We are all feeling the delays and shortages this pandemic has created within our supply chain, but are there also some positives that could come out of this new environment?
