We have become accustomed to all sorts of exotic goods and foods. From the new car and the latest smart phone to having fresh fruit all year round. Do you ever wonder how this all happens? Do you ever wonder that it happens at, when we think about it, a reasonable price?
Covid-19 and, to a lesser extent Brexit, have brought the complicated supply chains that deliver these goods to us under threat. How vulnerable are these lines of supply? Will things change in the future? Are there lessons in the current emergency that industries, supermarket chains and governments need to learn for the future? Has this pandemic taught us that some items are essential and strategic? Are these at the end of a supply chain that is vulnerable because it spans continents?
