Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Meat Extract Market:

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the food & beverage sector faced unexpected challenges.2020 saw global supply chains disrupted by lockdowns, production shutdowns, travel bans, and border restrictions. Meat extract market growth was hindered by disruptions in manufacturing and raw material sourcing. Lockdowns triggered panic-buying situations, which increased the sale of convenience products and meat extracts during the lockdown periods. However, production volumes of meat products decreased due to the shutdown of meat processing facilities.

Moreover, many consumers switched to plant-based diets as they perceived vegan products to be healthier than animal-derived products, further hampered meat sales. However, in 2021, the government announced relaxation in various restrictions, including reopening manufacturing units with partial or full employee strength. To bridge the demand and supply gap, meat extract market players increased their production volumes under these favorable conditions. Therefore, considering all the aforementioned factors, the pandemic had a mixed impact on the meat extract market.
