Food remains one of the thriving industries worldwide, given its essential business nature and a strong connection to consumers. In 2020, global food industry revenue jumped by a record 20% year over year to reach $8.2 trillion, driven by a huge demand increase amid the coronavirus outbreak. As the pandemic disrupted global food supply chains, consumers flocked to convenience stores to load up their carts, resulting in a 76% rise in convenience food sales.
The food industry is comprised of companies that focus primarily on offering food and non-alcoholic beverage products. It includes grocery stores, food distribution companies, and other companies offering consumer staples that consumers either eat or drink.
