COVID-19 Impact-

Sudden Outbreak of Coronavirus to Disrupt Raw Material Supply Chains

The epidemic has increased demand and sales for a range of FMCG products, particularly breakfast cereals, which are widely regarded as essential to people’s everyday life. Sales of packaged foods increased in the first several months as customers rushed to retailers to stockpile essential foodstuffs. People hoard non-perishable items, such breakfast cereals, as the number of COVID-19 cases climbs in an effort to stay inside their homes. As a result, there is a greater need for packaged foods that are ready to eat. Within a week of the lockout, many international breakfast cereal companies saw a sharp increase in stock prices, according to sources.


On the basis of product type, the Iran breakfast cereals industry is bifurcated into hot cereals and Ready-To-Eat (RTE) cereals. By distribution channel, the market is divided into supermarkets and hypermarkets, convenience stores, online retail, and others.
