The global pandemic is wreaking havoc on the supply chain, and particularly for meats such as beef and pork.
This week’s episode of the Restaurant Business podcast “A Deeper Dive” focuses on this topic with David Maloni, executive vice president of analytics for ArrowStream.
Maloni discusses the impact reduced production has had on the supply of meat, as well as prices. He talks about why shortages are taking place in some commodities such as fresh beef for burgers.
He also discusses the potential long-term impact this era could have on the price for meat at restaurants. It could be substantial.
