Market Growth Impacted by Availability of Less Manpower in Production Units amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The pandemic registered a drop in product sales as consumers began cooking at home in light of lockdown restrictions. The food service sectors in numerous countries were not fully operational until the second quarter of 2021. The reduced manpower in production units led to lesser stocks, affecting industry expansion to some extent.

Amyris Partnered with Minerva Foods to Develop Molecules for Sustainable Production

Minerva Foods is one of the key companies in Brazil for the sale and production of frozen and in natura (chilled) beef. The company is the largest beef exporter in South America.

Rising Convenience Food Demand to Propel Industry Expansion
