The covid 19 has created enormous pressure on hypermarkets and supermarkets and also retail stores with some other intermediate nodes associated with the supply chain. Due to the increased panic that has been noticed amongst the food and consumers, stockpiling processed and fresh food seems to have turned into a common phenomenon in the early pandemic lockdown stages across the world. the functional ice cream manufacturers are now more focused on online retail for meeting the demand of the consumer. But the biggest concern that remained in the logistics was the lockdown. The quick growth of the covid 19 virus throughout the world has led to an increase in vehicular movement and trade restrictions.

As the economy across the world is still under quite a pressure because of the pandemic and is recovering at a slow pace, its impact on global trade and the supply chain seems to have been low in the year 2021. The government of different countries have already imposed strict containment and there seem to be some preventive measures for controlling the outbreak impact which ideally resulted in the restricted transportation of the raw material across the globe. That is why a supply and demand gap is created. however, now there seems to be an easement of the lockdown in different countries and the trade is restarting in some capacity which is now showing a good effect on the overall market. While the market growth seems to be quite dampened because of the low spending power of the consumer during the covid 19 crisis, the effects are now subsiding during the short-term period.
