Facility shutdowns and slowdowns due to the COVID-19 – including the rise of the Delta variant – and the supply chain disruptions that still linger have shown that the food and beverage industry that preparation for crises such a global pandemic is increasingly vital to business resiliency.
While COVID-19 has by far emerged as the most significant such crisis, it’s also the third pandemic to hit manufacturers in 18 years, with the others being SARS in 2003 and H1N1 in 2009. This recent, troubling history reinforces the argument that these outbreaks and the damage they leave in their wake aren’t going away, so companies must prepare for them.
Companies must take a prescriptive and practical approach and proactively address threats like supply chain breakdown, protecting the workforce against transmission, government-mandated facility shutdowns, and alternate operations strategies. Companies that employ such plans demonstrate a commitment to consumers and regulators and might even unlock insurance benefits.
