The world will be reeling from the impact of Covid-19 for years to come. Professor David Hughes, also known as ‘Dr. Food’, gave a presentation on February 24 in which he contemplated the changes we can expect in grocery stores, restaurants and food distribution channels as a result of the pandemic.
“Covid-19 will change the grocery landscape forever,” he said, pointing to online grocery commerce as just one area that has already experienced a major transformation.
He also touched on other trends that are affecting our food system, such as more frozen foods and meal kits, “eating out in”, and food companies finding new routes to consumers.
Over 120 participants joined the webinar, one of three presentations in the Winter Speaker Series presented by Farm & Food Care in Saskatchewan, Ontario and Prince Edward Island.
