The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on global meat production, value chain management, and meat prices resulting in an intense socio-economic crisis worldwide. As a result of panic buying during the initial months of the viral outbreak, meat and meat product costs witnessed a noticeable uptick. In contrast, later on, production and demand for meat fell significantly owing to lockdown restrictions and the declining purchasing power of consumers, resulting in diminished product demand.
Besides, the unprecedented shutdown of in vitro meat labs and facilities due to lockdown situations and labor force shortage further worsened the crisis. The modifications in the legislation of local and international export markets severely disrupted industrial operations, further hampering the industry revenue streams.
