Meat Availability and Shortages Overview
As the meat-livestock sector continues to adapt to the situation presented by COVID-19 (novel coronavirus), a host of challenges regarding meat availability have developed. Many consumers who have previously taken for granted the efficiency and effectiveness of the meat supply chain, are now asking questions about the total volume available to consumers at grocery stores, the product mix available, and the asking prices that may arise in coming weeks. COVID-19 has seemingly impacted every step in the meat supply chain.
