Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Black Truffles Market

The COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected economies and industries due to lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdowns. Disruptions in the supply chains of key raw materials and irregularities in manufacturing processes due to restrictions imposed by government authorities had a direct impact on the food & beverages industry. These factors negatively impacted the black truffles market during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, in 2021, the marketplace witnessed a positive recovery as the governments announced the relaxation of previously imposed restrictions. The manufacturers were permitted to work at full capacity, leveraging their profitability. This factor is expected to drive the market in the coming years.
