We are entering a period of unsettlement when it comes to the food supply chain, stemming from the shortage of goods vehicle drivers this not only has an effect on the consumer in the retail outlets but on the entire supply chain from raw materials to packaging and everything used in the manufacturing of food.
The blame is mainly being put on the delivery driver shortage, but this is not just an issue in the UK, this is a Europe wide issue and follows the coronavirus pandemic. It would seem that some drivers have found a new career path to take and are happy to move on, while those hoping to qualify as drivers are finding that the red tape is taking a lot longer to get through than it would have before the pandemic.
So, until the situation is resolved the food supply chain is going to be under increasing pressure and it would seem that the longer it goes on the more chance there is of food shortages in the supermarkets, just like what we experienced at the beginning of the pandemic.
For many suppliers with large amounts of food in storage, this is an opportunity not only to venture into new markets but to be seen to be helping to ease the situation and therefore get some great publicity into the bargain. There are many online marketplaces to use and some are even free to get started on, this makes perfect sense and could just be the platform that some suppliers are waiting for.
