We look to predict the Fresh food landscape 18 months post Coronavirus lockdown

We are in lockdown. Supermarket shelves have been stripped bare. Flights are grounded. Workers have been laid off; furloughed; transformed into primary school teachers. A Conservative government has nationalised the railways and is paying people not to work. The economy is tanking and the Prime Minister for the UK is in intensive care with Coronavirus. And this is still only week three. In less than a month, Britain has experienced the kind of social and political upheaval that normally only comes when you guillotine some royals, or storm a winter palace. But is this a brief moment of national solidarity, or a ‘new normal’?

The reality is, nobody knows. We have never faced something like Covid-19 before and though there are analogues in the way that countries adapt to traumas like war and famine, in the global west at least, this situation is unprecedented in the modern age. Already, the impact of the coronavirus crisis on everything from the economy to social interactions to the environment has been enormous. So we wish to ask our Beanstalk industry experts what they think’s going to happen as the pandemic bites, then finally abates for the fresh food sectors.

Join and hear from our experts what the potential future may hold for us all

Watch and listen, and be inspired.
