Industry experts believe that the grocery industry is prepared to keep store shelves stocked with the basics during the COVID-19 pandemic:
“‘No industry is better positioned than a 24/7 industry,’ Geoff Freeman, president and CEO of the Consumer Brands Association, told Food Dive. ‘…We’re used to that aspect. We’re used to periods in time where there’s much more demand, whether it’s around the Super Bowl, whether it’s around March Madness, whether it’s around the holidays, you know, we’re used to having to ramp things up. So no one was perfectly prepared for this situation, but no one is better positioned than the broader grocery industry.”
