Significant industry players remain uncertain about the future of the industry and tend to adapt their strategies to support themselves in this battle. The pandemic has had a significant impact on manufacturing, recyclable packaging or reusable service industries and most multinational companies have had to avoid factories and other sectors. However, due to a greater emphasis on the safety of packaged food, an effective measure of sterilization and disinfection has been adopted by food delivery and processing chains to maintain the trust of their customers and their brand preference.
