COVID-19 affects food safety and concerns Asian consumers

By Julia Nishio e Daniel Vidal Pérez |

The COVID-19 pandemic has increased consumer concern regarding food contamination in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) area. According to the Food Safety Supply Chain Vision Study, around 70% of the Western Pacific Ocean population are interested in getting to know about the origin and how the food they consume is sourced. For this reason, giants of the food market have opted for various strategies of tracking its products as they look to provide transparency in their activities. Furthermore, the customers also hope States act diligently to assure the food chain production.

Impacts on Defense and Security: The Food and Agriculture Organizations of the United Nations (FAO) indicates that annually around 3 million people die and 600 million fall ill due to contaminated food intake. Food safety is one of the fundamental principles of human security and, consequently, of national security.
