This rivalry can make it challenging for ice cream makers to pass on higher raw material prices to customers.

Demand for ice cream products fell in the early stages of the pandemic because people were confined to their homes and restaurants and ice cream parlors were closed. People have found it difficult to gather and socialize because of social distancing measures. This has resulted in a decrease in demand for ice cream products, since individuals are less likely to buy ice cream for gatherings.
