In case you missed it!
On May 4th, 2020, the CFBN in partnership with Bader Rutter’s Intel Distillery hosted our weekly open discussion "Bader Rutter Monday's @ 11" on the top news stories and breaking headlines impacting food production.
We got to hear insights from Bader Rutter staff that have tracked the top stories from the most influential voices in the business. From farm fields to consumer plates, the Chicago-based team has diligently categorized and catalogued everything important in food, beverage and agriculture to outline a clear picture of what's happening and who's driving the conversations on our industry.
It has been a busy last week in industry news. Bader Rutter covered and answered questions on all of the highlights including farmers' views on planting season, the delicate balance between safety and production, and thoughts on a shift back to nutrition. They also covered three hot topics:
Daily changes in the meat industry including new guidance from the CDC for meat plants and their employees, the president issuing deeming meat plants as an essential business giving them power to stay open, and how some retailers are addressing the meat shortage with limiting purchasing to customers.
Chefs are still pushing back on opening although some cities are opening up citing safety of employees and lower customer volume issues. PPP funds were refreshed giving some hope to businesses.
Many big businesses began to release their Quarter 1 earnings giving us a better understanding of current trends with Dominoes, McDonalds, and others.
