Webinar Description: COVID-19 redefined Canadians food purchasing habits in several ways and consumers emerge from a historical experience that lasted several months. Before the crisis, vegetable proteins were in fashion, plastics were the new threat and shopping online was seen by many as a far-fetched idea. Things have changed, probably for a while. While reflecting on the past few months, this presentation paints a portrait on the future of proteins. Trends, supply, grocery shopping, restaurants, online commerce, prices, everything will be looked at, as well as lessons we must consider from the COVID-19 crisis.
