The appeal of eating clean food is stronger than ever

Organic & Sustainable Agriculture Spot On

Food purchasing patterns shifted drastically in early 2020 during the COVID-19 quarantine, resulting in a huge increase in organic foods as people stayed home and focused on their health, while food consumed at restaurants understandably plummeted. With clean food being perceived as a “safe haven’, supply chains endeavored to work together to ensure the delivery of healthy foods. Doug Kravet, Oaklins’ organic & sustainable agriculture specialist gives us his expert opinion on where the sector will go and the likely outcome once the pandemic subsides.

Organic and sustainably-grown food has proven to be a safe haven, providing comfort for consumers in this turbulent economy. In the short-term, M&A activity has slowed considerably as firms responded to COVID-19. Once markets normalize, we expect firms to make major investments to address weaknesses and deficiencies that were exposed in the past several months.
