In March and April,
purchases of frozen
and shelf-stable foods
increased substantially.

entered the first two
weeks of May, when
most states were
beginning to ease or lift
stay-at-home orders,
Chicory observed higher
sales of fresh fruit and
protein ingredients

"For the first time
since the coronavirus
pandemic began to
grip the nation and
keep cooks and families
stationed at home, we
observed growth for fruit
products," said Hillary
Reeves, vice president
of marketing at Chicory.
"Perhaps it's the promise
of warmer weather, but
consumer content usage
indicates that shoppers
are feeling comfortable
incorporating fresh fruits
back into their shopping

caused by COVID-19, the
platform will connect
retailers requiring
additional resources
with suppliers that have
the needed capacity of
products, transportation
services, labor and/or
warehousing services.
"The tool ensures
the food supply chain
remains safe and
efficient," said Mark
Baum, chief collaboration
officer and senior vice
president of industry
relations at FMI. "The
new effort will make the
process of connecting
FMI and related product
suppliers with capacity,
and FMI member
companies in need of
assistance, quick and
more precise through
a digitized system.
This allows us to assist
our FMI food retailers
and wholesalers fulfill
needs at grocery stores,
which are experiencing
skyrocketing demand,
and at the same time,
assist our product
supplier members
in creating new
relationships and
