Survey: covid effects on agricultural-food supply chain

Collection: DATAM : EC data portal of agro-economic research 

Description

On 14 July 2020 the JRC launched a survey in all 24 EU official languages to monitor the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on the EU’s agricultural-food supply chain - from farm to fork. Survey target were companies and businesses (including small enterprises and farmers) active in the production, distribution, processing, wholesale or retail stages of the agri-food supply chain. The aim was to investigate the resilience, constraints and responses of operators to COVID-19, all along the chain.

Questions covered both the lockdown and easing of lockdown measures, exploring operators’ experiences, thoughts on future prospects and the measures they need to support their activities. Responses were helpful to provide relevant evidence to EU policymaking. The COVID-19 crisis is putting a significant strain on the EU’s agri-food supply chain. Measures introduced to slow down the spread of the pandemic - such as quarantine, increased border controls and the shutdown of the economy – imply profound effect on supply chain operators. The survey was closed on 15 January 2021. This dashboard illustrates the survey's results
