Abstract

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that may cause illness and respiratory infection ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) and was discovered recently in Wuhan, China, December 2019. The main focus of this review paper was to study the effect of COVID-19 especially on Food and Agriculture Sector which includes food industries such as the dairy industry, fruits, and vegetable industry, meat and poultry industry, fisheries, and aquaculture, etc. As food is one of the basic necessities of an individual which contributes a large portion to the economy of our country. Due to COVID-19, 30% of the Indian population is currently suffering from food unavailability and food scarcity. This paper highlights the effect of the pandemic on the three basic pillars of the food industry that are raw materials availability, production of goods, and marketing of the finished product. During the COVID-19 outbreak, the raw material availability abruptly stopped which causes the production to stand still and markets were closed which caused a huge loss. The preventive measures adopted by the country included border closures, quarantines, and trade disruption and thus increased the risk of food crises under a very short duration. In the future, food industries will have to come up with new protocols to sustain in this NEW NORMAL WORLD with more focus on Artificial Intelligence including minimal human contact with proper sanitation and hygiene practices.
