Impact of COVID-19 on North America Ascorbic acid Market

North America is the most affected continent due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with the highest number of victims and deceased in the USA. There has been a huge impact on the food & beverage sector in this area due to the shutdown in several provinces. The manufacturing units are closed and the supply chain was disrupted, which resulted in a decline in sales of ascorbic acid. The same trend is foreseen to continue for some time in the coming years.

The greatest impact of COVID-19 remains to be seen and it may be months, even years before the economy calms down. In addition to the problems that will affect all companies, food manufacturers and their suppliers will have other factors to consider. While restaurants and bars may be closed, people are still eating, and therefore high-quality food must always be produced, shipped, and supplied to the customer. Food safety remains the primary concern of all manufacturers, but should now include measures to stop the coronavirus. There is currently no evidence that the virus has been transmitted through food or food packaging, but there is evidence that it can remain viable on certain surfaces for a longer period of time. Normal food handling procedures should be sufficient to control COVID-19, provided social distancing and other measures are followed.
