There was the one before COVID-19 and the one that we are still navigating presently, as the pandemic changes everything from how businesses are run to how customers purchase their goods.

One industry that has been thrust into the very spotlight of this post-COVID19 reality is agriculture and our food chain. Even before COVID-19, the Philippines already had issues with food safety and food security.
