Future Proofing as we Navigate Change
Bord Bia will make every effort to address the immediate industry challenges of Covid-19 and equip the food and drinks sector to navigate the economic impact. To do this, we must focus on learning quickly from this crisis and adequately equipping our members and stakeholders to adapt for now and evolve for the future.
In time, when the immediate and severe impacts of Covid-19 have abated, food and drink companies must start planning for a post Covid-19 future. This is a key aspect of Navigating Change and Bord Bia will provide member companies with the specific supports throughout this crisis – bespoke to each phase so they can adapt to new market conditions; recover and reset.
There are many unknowns in relation to the world after Covid-19 and how it will emerge, both economically and societally. This will be influenced by whether this is a “one-off” or a recurring phenomenon, the duration of the pandemic, and the legacy it leaves in its wake.
To address this uncertainty, and as businesses begin to emerge from the immediate crisis and plan ahead, Bord Bia will provide business with vital resources and insights including;
- Learning from International Markets: Examining those markets who were impacted at an early stage impact-Covid 19, and patterns as they emerge from the crisis
- Looking to the Future: Allowing businesses to begin to think about post-Covid 19 realities, and what that might mean for their business
- Bespoke insight programmes
