Responding to the risks posed by the combined threats of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Russia-Ukraine conflict, skyrocketing gas prices, and critical supply shortages, the United States federal government is taking unprecedented steps to strengthen the resilience of the supply chain and protect American families.
The Biden-Harris administration is focused on improving the agility of federal and state governments to respond to supply shortages by encouraging competition, diversity, and new entrants.
Over the past two and a half years since the first COVID-19 cases emerged, the global supply chain has experienced a myriad of obstacles—and continues to. From manufacturing to ocean shipping to trucking, just about every challenge that could occur, has occurred. Perhaps, however, there are some rays of light starting to emerge for the supply chain.
The food supply chain has become increasingly complicated and much longer, with supply chains for some products consisting of more than one hundred links. In the fresh produce industry in particular, products are transported thousands of miles to meet consumer needs. Unfortunately, the method for tracking supply chain events has historically been pen and paper, resulting in data that is often recorded improperly or simply does not follow the product. An effective solution to this dearth of information is a chain of custody which identifies the origin of a product, everyone who has touched a product, every place the product has been, and all associated records, captured in a way that allows for easy retrieval.
In the pursuit of a healthier lifestyle, most people prioritize consuming food that is nutrient dense and free from ingredients which are likely to cause poor outcomes such as weight gain. However, few people understand the link between health and food safety. When unsafe food is consumed, nutritional deficiencies occur, causing disease and mental illness, and hampering growth and development. According to the World Health Organization, more than two hundred diseases are caused by viruses, bacteria, parasites, and chemicals found in contaminated foods, including cancers. Infants, Children, the elderly, and the infirm suffer the most adverse effects from foodborne contaminants.
